THE LOST WARHOLS, a spectacular collection of images – many never before seen – by photographer Karen Bystedt.
There are sixty-six creative portrait collaborations: a fabulous mash-up of renowned artists’ visions and Warhol’s likeness.
The exhibition is in support of God’s Love We Deliver, the metropolitan area’s leading provider of nutritious, medically-tailored meals for clients who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves.
The gallery is open to the public from May 1-22, 2018 and located at 178 Sixth Avenue in New York City.
About Karen Bystedt:
Karen Bystedt, founder and photographer of The Lost Warhols brings to life one of the greatest art icons of the twentieth century. Bystedt was a student at NYU, working on a book on the top male models of the era, when she cold called Andy Warhol. Andy himself answered the phone and agreed to a rare sitting with Bystedt in the conference room at ‘The Factory’. Bystedt went on to publish four books. Having found the negatives in 2011, long lost since the initial shoot in 1982, in Andy’s spirit, Bystedt has collaborated with some of today’s great artists in the street and pop art genres including Peter Tunney, Speedy Graphito, Gregory Siff, Dom Pattinson and Chris Brown aka Konfuzed. Permanent collections of the Lost Warhols may be found at The Andy Warhol Museum, the Armenian Museum of Modern Art, the Hearst Foundation, the Lourdes Foundation and in the private collections of Prince Albert of Monaco, Tomoasso Buti, George Lopez, David Caruso and the Dean Collection (Swizz Beats) among others. Bystedt also has Warhol murals in Los Angeles and Houston, Texas.
