Campaign launched for David Bowie memorial sculpture in Brixton


A crowdfunding campaign has been launched to fund the construction of a tribute to David Bowie in the form of a three-storey lightning bolt near his birthplace in Brixton.

Designed by artists at This Ain’t Rock’n’Roll, with consultation from members of the late star’s team, the memorial is a reference to Bowie’s Aladdin Sane album cover and would be located five streets away from Stansfield Road, London, where he was born.

It hopes to raise £990,000 in 28 days to fund the installation, which would stand next to Jimmy C’s famous Aladdin Sane mural. It had raised close to £30,000 in its first 24 hours.
