David Bowie mural revealed in Bosnia

A 43-foot high, 34-foot wide mural paying tribute to David Bowie was revealed in Bosnia on Saturday, paying tribute to a man that Bosnians remember not just as a legendary artist but one who worked to raise awareness for humanitarian issues during the Bosnian war.

The mural was unveiled in Sarajevo in front of 300 people while “Space Oddity” played in the background.

“This is a way to pay tribute to Bowie as an artist and humanitarian and immortalize him in the town that never got a chance to host him,” said Bowie Team Sarajevo spokesman Adnan Comor.

  1. I didn’t know that Cap’n.
    Thanks for the information.
    That shows you that David, just as some other Rock/Pop talent, were authentic good hearted persons, and lemme mention good man John Lennon and his influence in sayin’- no to war and violence-
    Rest In Peace, brother David and love and the best to the Bowie family and to David’s friends, and of course, to
    his many millions of fans.
