It’s almost a year since David Bowie’s untimely death, and Brixton is preparing to mark the first anniversary of his passing with a series of gigs and events this weekend. Please note that the Brixton Buzz event on Friday has now completely sold out.
Created by Australian street artist James Cochran in 2013, the Bowie mural opposite Brixton tube station continues to provide a focus for fans wanting to pay tribute to the Brixton-born musician and superstar.
Throughout the year, fans from across the world have continued to make the journey to Brixton to leave personal messages, flowers and items in tribute to the legendary artist.
Brixton Buzz has been faithfully recording the changing messages, artwork and flowers over the last 12 months.
It’s been disappointing to see that fans have now started scrawling all over the artwork, prompting fears that the mural may be soon be damaged beyond repair.
The mural is located on the side of Morleys department store, and they have asked that people do not write on the adjacent stonework. Here you can see a worker painting over messages.
The Bowie mural can be found directly opposite Brixton tube station, just off the main road.
