David Bowie "Heroes" Movie Poster Print

Regular price £19.99 Sale


This print reimagines David Bowie's 1977 album "Heroes" as a German Expressionist movie from the 1920s. Bowie loved German Expressionism, so much so that his famous pose on the front cover of the 1977 "Heroes" album echoes a print by Erich Heckel, who was one of the leading figures in the movement. The album was recorded in Berlin (in the famous Hansa Tonstudio by the Wall), and the intertwining of all these influences gave me the idea to create this poster in a mid-European early 20th century style.

The hand in this print is Bowie's own hand from the album cover, drawn in an Expressionist style. And the words 'Wie können Helden sein" around it translate as 'We can be heroes', which is a repeated lyric in the title song. It's a direct translation of the lyric, by the way, rather than the line 'Dann sind wir Helden' that Bowie sings on his German version of the "Heroes" single - it makes more sense in the context of this imaginary movie poster.
