Could you come up with a name for this David Bowie painting?

Visitors to the Victoria Theatre’s Bowie Experience will be invited to name a painting which will be displayed at the event.

The painting of pop icon David Bowie will be revealed before the start of the one-off performance on Saturday 25 February at 7:30pm.

The artwork is the first in a new series of icon based images by local artist Carl Hopkins and was created using acrylic paints on a copperleaf background.

The painting is over six feet high and 40 inches wide and took Carl over 40 hours to complete in his Brighouse studio.

He said: “I’m delighted to have my painting displayed at the Victoria Theatre. I was working on the painting when I found out about the show and I thought it would be a fantastic opportunity to have it on show during the evening.

“What better way to name the painting than to let Bowie’s fans decide!”

Guests at the Victoria Theatre will be able to suggest a name for the painting by taking a selfie with the art and posting their suggestion on Twitter using the hashtag #victheatrebowie.
