Hey you guys! Artist finally brave enough to paint over Bowie makes drastic changes

By Simon Donohue

It’s hardly a fitting replacement for David Bowie, but at least #outhouseMCR has finally found someone brave enough to paint over the late singer’s famous Stevenson Square graffiti tribute.

As I wrote in this blog, #outhouseMCR had struggled to identify anyone willing to take on the poison chalice painting project, even though works are only intended to remain in place for three months at a time.

Don’t tell anyone but I really can’t imagine this piece remaining in place quite so long as Bowie did!
