The Occultural Art and Music of David Bowie

David Bowie was one of the most influential and evocative artists of the 20th century. Where did he get his inspiration from? From his early devotion to Buddhism to his Cabbalistic workings, this talk will explore the impact of the Occult on David Bowie’s art, moving between conjecture and overt displays of his interest, in the liminal, ambiguous zone that his androgyne creations inhabit. Special focus shall be on his Cabbalistic works, including the hidden symbolism in his art.


Anthony Ryan’s lifelong interest in the strange and bizarre has taken him through a career in Mental Health, where his interest in depth psychology complimented his fascination with the Occult. His current interest area is the Cabbala, and his fascination with John Dee doesn’t get in the way of his having a healthy relationship too much.
