Niesche’s art seamlessly blends music, fashion, and color. His works often feature homages to cultural icons: for example, his 2017 exhibition Cracked Actor is named after a David Bowie song, while his 2018 exhibition Throb used titles and parts of song lyrics from Iggy Pop’s album The Passenger. A standout piece, Virgil Vigil, pays tribute to the late fashion legend Virgil Abloh, cleverly blending color and style.
The artist also references Bowie’s iconic lightning bolt makeup, using it as a gradient in a triptych paravent while channeling Harry’s vibrant eye makeup into striking abstract compositions. These elements, combined with the shimmer of glam rock, seen through the use of reflective materials and glossy frames, create a mesmerizing allure in his creations.
