A mural of David Bowie that has been likened to Pat Sharp has popped up in Sheffield to much disappointment.

After the tragic death of music legend David Bowie, tributes poured in, and most strikingly, thousands gathered at the mural of the man at Brixton, where he was born.

Sheffield graffiti artist, Trik09, tried to recreate the Ziggy Stardust look on the mural in Brixton with the lightning bolt as depicted on the album cover of Aladdin Sane.

However the tribute on our very own Division Street has failed to impress both fans of the star and members of the public who cannot recognise it as him.

The street art which was painted over a picture of Mick Jagger, is 7ft tall, and was revealed last month, receiving most of its criticism on social media.

Holly Brown, a second year Journalism student, said: “He’s replaced a picture of Mick Jagger with this rubbish! It can’t be a tribute when it looks nothing like him.”

Artist, Trik said he found it all “fun”, but he might now paint over the picture.

The 25-year-old self-taught artist told the BBC: “I’m looking at the reaction right now. It’s not very nice to see people talking about me as an artist.”
