Note: This Limited edition poster was made quoting the words of the artists friend, David Bowie. . Emin first met Bowie in 1997, when he approached her at a restaurant in London to compliment her artwork. 18 years later, to mark his passing, Harper's Bazaar republished Tracey Emin's memories of her first encounter with the singer. The cover cover had one of Emin's neon works created in homage to the great rock star. Touching, funny and uplifting, the article is a worthy weekend read - where two stars collide in humble appreciation of the other's creativity. This work was made in 2016. Needless to say all the works in the edition were sold out instantly. This motif and design has been used by the artist also as neon lights. Tracey Emin is a notable and prolific British artist recognised for her place in the Young British Artists movement of the 1990s, and in particular for her provocative and controversial works such as Everyone I have ever slept with 1963-1995 and My Bed, which was on display at London's Tate Modern gallery as part of her nomination for the Turner Prize in 1999
