David Bowie’s artistry has touched many of us in the Matterport Family, and we are deeply saddened by the loss of this incredible creative personality today. Bowie succumbed to cancer at the age of 69.
The innovative Brit gained popularity in the late 1960s for his constantly morphing persona and his bold music choices, all of which have kept him in the limelight for the past four decades. Bowie’s iconic image set the standard for embracing individually in the music scene, inspiring many artists after him. He sold over 140 million albums throughout his career with famous hits including Let’s Dance, Changes, Under Pressure, and Life on Mars. His most recent album, Blackstar, was released last week, intended as his parting gift to the world. Bowie passed away surrounded by family after an 18-month battle with cancer.
Rest in peace, David Bowie.
