This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Born on February 15, 1926 in Youngstown, Ohio, Bowie became a sculptor and moved to New York City where in 1972, he opened the Sculpture Studio. There he created abstract sculpture and wall sculpture for homes, hotels, and other commercial buildings.

Bowie’s early mosaics were constructed of leather scraps, but he soon discovered cellulose sponges in a dime store and used them to form his pattern after dyeing them various colors. He also worked in metals, and his 88-foot high impression of the New York City skyline was commissioned and is displayed at the New York Bank for Savings.

Some Awards:

Purchase Prize - 1965 Sculpture Exhibit of the Butler Institute of American Art
Purdue University’s  "Symposium '66" Good Design Award
Award of Outstanding Merit in Craftsmanship from Artist-Craftsman of New York

Bowie died on January 18, 1994 in New York City.
