Carlos Ramos does Bowie

Following his recent Stanley Kubrik themed show at Corey Helford, Carlos Ramos again tackles another pop culture monolith singlehandedly, this time: David Bowie. From his many musical identities (Ziggy Stardust, the Man Who Fell to Earth) to the multitude of his film characters (Labyrinth's Jareth the Goblin King, Twin Peaks' Phillip Jeffries), no Bowie persona is safe from Ramos' pop sensibilities, debuting soon at Rotofugi Gallery in Chicago. Carlos recently sent Hi-Fructose an exclusive behind the scenes look into his studio as well as a peek at three of the completed pieces. Check them out after the jump.
