Artwork by Nathan Wyburn David Bowie of Tiny Rebel Brewery
ANOTHER Gwent monument has received the Nathan Wyburn treatment – as they celebrate their reopening with a new piece of art.
The artist from Ebbw Vale worked at the Tiny Rebel Brewery in Rogerstone where he spent a week creating the masterpiece on the brewery wall – using cans of Tiny Rebel beer.
He spent four days attaching the unique beer cans to the walls before getting down to work with the paint. The end result sees music icon David Bowie joined by several of the Tiny Rebel brand’s bear logos.
“I really wanted this piece to be about color,” said Wyburn. “The cans are so vibrant and as soon as I saw the variety I could use, I knew I wanted to do some kind of color-blocked Andy Warhol illustration.

“The choice to paint Bowie came from his song Rebel rebel, which was the perfect solution. And as a pop culture artist, I knew I wanted to do more than their logo – which looks awesome too, roughly splashed on the cans.
“The red paint stands out particularly so bold and emphasizes the rebellious theme.
“To have such a basic room in a historic Welsh venue is always an honor. The team were fantastic during my time there and I really hope the work makes the guest experience even more wonderful.

He also recently published two books of his work – POP PIE which tells about a decade of his work, and 2020: Journal of artist Nathan Wyburn, which recounts his work created during the first 12 months of the Covid-19 pandemic. All proceeds from the book go to the Cardiff & Vale Health Charity.
