Inspiration: Leigh Bowery, In a universe of his own

We are so tired of all the preposterous nonsense Lady Gaga has been putting out in the world that we wanted to take a moment and set the record straight and look at a true avant-garde icon, Leigh Bowery. Rising to fame in the early 80's, Bowery became his own work of art through completely unconventional performances, and created the legendary night club Taboo, where Londoners were both exulted and scandalized by his shows. Leigh Bowery is an icon who had considerable influence upon the contemporary period through underground culture and his inventive personas were so magical, there will never be anyone who can come close to touching upon that.
