Tonight sees the opening of the David Bowie exhibition at London’s V&A, featuring costumes, album artwork and set designs from his personal archive. Stylesight’s Graphics team of experts brings you a range of the most directional visuals by graphic designers who have been inspired by Bowie’s influential work.

Coinciding with the release of Bowie’s first single and album in a decade, the V&A has curated an exhibition showcasing more than 300 objects from Bowie’s 50 year career as a musician. Items on display include the Ziggy Stardust bodysuits (1972) designed by Freddie Burretti, Kansai Yamamoto’s creations for the 1973 Aladdin Sane tour, and album sleeve artwork by Guy Peellaert and Edward Bell. Some of Bowie’s personal work is also on display, including his sketches (see below), diaries, and handwritten lyrics that reveal his innovative and creative thought process.
