The artistic vocabulary of the Starman Tarot was born in the years De Angelis spent working with David Bowie on the albums, Outside, Earthling, art installations, stage designs, books and product concepts. The deck weaves together experimantal typography, street art, eroticised scri-fi imagery, influcences of philosophy, shamanism, cosmology, futuristic cosmologies, chaos theory, Caravaggio, destroyed imagery of punk alongside intricate sacred geometries. Each card is a compelling micro-drama arriving fully formed and at the same time constantly shape-shifting. Through powerful archetypes and mesmerising dreamscapes - the deck speaks powerfully and directly about the turbulent times we are currently facing and acts as a portal to a vivid and miraculous future. It gives all who use it access to a vital form of creative expression, revealed wisdom and guidance.
"Having a totally unique Identity created by Davide Activates something Beautiful and Alive in an organization"
"Davide's Work is Potent Visual Alchemy"
David Bowie - icon of creativity and highly successful businessman
I worked directly with David Bowie and his New York Innovation company Isolar for over 7-Years, building identities, conceptualizing products, designing album covers, stage sets, books, art shows and much more. I honed the skill of communicating with a global audience of literally millions, in a very moving and intimate way. Regardless of what we are told we can shape-shift between many disciplines and bring fresh eyes - the eyes of the shaman to life in any situation..
"Really Amazing Design!"
Steve Jobs- legendary innovator and business genius
I worked on several high profile projects for Apple over the course of 4-years. The above quote refers to my work around developing new types of interface design - some of which you may well still be interacting with on your iPhone today. I had a powerful intuition to use visual ideas more akin to creating Fine Art, an approach that was considered the antithesis of creating interactive communications, but resulted in an exciting breakthrough to screen-based presentations. The first roll-out came with Apple's interactive in-store sales screens with Steve Jobs personally overseeing the project.

"There is a fusion of ancient knowledge and wisdom - the geometries, the eternal shapes - with what can only be described as a futuristic way of thinking, it is both completely familiar yet utterly mysterious."
My Purpose is to Astound, Enrich and Innovate life through the visual realm.
David Bowie gave me the tag of Visual Alchemist and I gladly accept it. Since a small child I have been compelled to create images and geometries. I cut my teeth as a designer when still at school, creating logos and covers for punk bands. I'm passionate about bringing beauty and wonder to life through my work. I am privileged to work with amazing people who trust me to create something striking and unique to communicate their businesses and ideas. In my own art I am always drawn to express the extraordinary nature of our human experience.
In harmony with my visual work, I'm also a writer, futurist and teacher of
