David Bowie: Street Art Legend

Ever since his death, David Bowie has been popping up on London's walls from Brixton to Bromley. Here we round up some of the more impressive murals to the much-missed singer.

The Bowie mural in Brixton was painted by Jimmy C in 2013, but became something of a shrine after the singer's death. Image by M@.
