Art Tuesday: Andy Warhol

Hello there! You may remember that about a million years ago (at least, that's what it feels like) I went to Hong Kong - for a photo-filled post about my trip click here. I said in that post:

In Kowloon, we went to an Andy Warhol exhibition! I don't have any pictures for you in this post, but keep an eye out...~wink~

...who knew that it would take me over four months to write about Andy Warhol? I was meaning to, I just...didn't. You know how it is.

The exhibition we went to was in Kowloon - at the Hong Kong Museum of Art - and we saw some amazing work. Here are a few of my favourites...

Pretty cool, no?

Marilyn Monroe is of course his most famous print, but I love this one of Elizabeth Taylor. It was really interesting reading about how he does these prints.

This print had been run so that it covered an entire wall. It looked AWESOME. I would love to have a roll of that wallpaper!

I absolutely loved his 'Endangered Animals' prints, especially this one.

And this one...

...and this one. Look at the awesome colours!

This one is also beautiful. I love the definition of the lines, and the detail.

We saw all of these, hung up next to each other in a row.
All in all, it was a fantastic exhibition and amped up my Andy Warhol love no end! Love you,

    1. Hehe, same ... thanks for the tag! I would like to do it (but I probably won't get round to it for a millennium or so let's be honest).
