David Bowie Life Mask – by Erick Erickson
About this piece: Created by artist Erick Erickson from an original cast.
This life mask is an actual cast taken from the face of David Bowie.
The facial surface of Bowie has been preserved to show every pore. In Hollywood, life masks are made to create special makeup effects for the movies. The makeup artist layers special moulding material directly on the star’s face. The celebrity must sit very still as the GOOP hardens on their face, usually breathing through straws stuffed in their nostrils. When pulled from the face the artist then pours plaster into the mould. This creates a positive exact image of the star’s face in 3 dimensions. See and touch every unique detail of the person. It’s like having them there with you. It’s fun to study every pore, wrinkle, scar or blemish of David Bowie!
