R. Star Sticker David Bowie
Born in Hollywood in the 40’s and raised as a “valley boy” in the 50’s. Main interest then…..Art Star Shields is a master airbrush artist that started airbrushing tee-shirts around 1961 at Pacific Ocean Park (P.O.P.) and The Minnesota State Fair.
Then in 1973 Star and his 2 art partners formed The Rainbow Kids in Laguna Beach with their imfamous Spaceship Booth at The Sawdust Art Festival. It was during those years that they airbrush personal stage and tour clothing for Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, George Harrison Paul McCartney and Wings, Allmond Brothers, Moody Blues and others. Classic Rainbow Surfboards were also being airbrushed and still are now.
Then in 1979 at The Rainbow Rose Festival and the first Doo Dah Parade in Pasadena, Star originated fantasy airbrush face painting and body art. Since that time airbrush face and body art has expanded to hundreds of artists worldwide.
Like Ricardo Duffy, Star agrees that we must create universal conscience in humans. This philosophy is embedded in our art works. Art saves lives.
