David Bowie, the renowned musician, artist, and cultural icon, passed away on January 10, 2016 after battling with cancer for over a year. As his friends, family and fans come together to pay their respects to the man responsible for first introducing us to Major Tom in “Space Oddity”, artists from all around the world are paying tribute in their own style. Below are six artists who interpreted (and reimagined) the classic Aladdin Sane lightning bolt.

For more photos of David Bowie over the years, take a look at the work of Masayoshi Sukita, who photographed the artist for over 40 years.
