DAVID BOWIE was well loved for his proud and flamboyant personality.  he was a role model for the misfits of the world, who just happen to be some of the most creative people alive.  now, over a month after his passing, a new tribute has popped up and it’s unlike any we have seen yet.  theres a clever twist to a stretch of railing in new york city.  depending on which way you walk by, you will see one of two different pictures! check out this video to see what i mean.

it’s unclear who exactly the artist is, but people have pointed out that the work does bear a resemblance to the style of a german duo known as ZEBRATING.

a similar tribute showed up on a nearby gate after steve jobs passed away in 2011.
