David Bowie Original by Ben Riley

This original is an iconic image of musician David Bowie, made up entirely of vinyl records. A phenomenal mixed media original, each piece of vinyl is reflective and dazzling in different angles and lights.

Because of this, each portrait gives many different impressions to the eye, enrapturing a nostalgic moment in time.


Ben Riley is available for private commissions. Please note the outcome is down to the artists discretion. Please speak to us to discuss.

About Ben Riley

“I feel as an artist it is my duty to connect the viewer with the icon, to feel the mind, body and soul – allowing the music to make the icon, rather than the icon making the music.”

Previously, vinyl records had one of two destinies, the charity shop box in the corner of the room, or the rubbish pile. Instead, Ben sees immortality in their existence – recreating the icons of music, film, society quite literally from the music form that made them. The identity of these pieces will remain unique, just as no two vinyl records will ever sound the same, nor will the features of their portrait. 

A 3D piece of art, from a monotone format. Each piece of vinyl is emotionally charged, some reflective, dazzling in different angles and lights, some reserved and soft. Because of this, each portrait gives many different impressions to the eye, enrapturing a nostalgic moment in time. Vinyl is the only medium to let these portraits sing.

Ben Riley captures the human face in all its detail, showing its lifelong adventure. Each one unique to the rest, the story changes each time holding a multitude of twists and turns. The eyes, the mouth, the skin, the tell-tale signs of life and journey – captured in the peaks and troughs of the lines, just like the vinyl record.
