Hormazd Narielwalla: Diamond Dolls

 

Inspired by David Bowie as a teenager growing up in India, the artist Hormazd Narielwalla has now created an artist’s book dedicated to the Brixton born legendary performer. The concept explores Bowie’s position as a cultural trailblazer, with several dozen interpretations of outfits that his alter-ego Ziggy Stardust might have worn.

Hormazd has been speaking to Anthony Baxter about the new book, called Diamond Dolls – a nod to Bowie’s album Diamond Dogs, and an exhibition that coincides with the launch at the Eagle Gallery in Clerkenwell from 15th July – 7th August 2021
