POPism: The Andy Warhol Show

New Paintings

On a sunny New York afternoon on June 3, 1968, Valerie Solanas walked into the Factory and opened fire at Warhol. Amidst his screams for her to stop, Solanas fired a second shot. Then a third shot rang.

On June 3, 1968 Andy Warhol survived. But what if Warhol died that day. What if Pop had died that day?

In his electrifying new series POPISM: THE ANDY WARHOL SHOW, internationally acclaimed artist Johnny Romeo re-envisions himself as the contemporary Andy Warhol. The series sees Romeo appropriate some of the Pop Master’s most iconic work, injecting each piece with his own incendiary blend of Neo-expressionist Pop and urban street art. Explosive fields of colour and cascading, stream-of-consciousness text collide with bombastic, graphic renditions of Warhol classics like ‘Mao’ and ‘Marilyn Monroe’. POPISM: THE ANDY WARHOL SHOW is a rambunctious and bona fide statement of Pop’s enduring power from one of the world’s leading Pop artists.
