We get a lot of inspiration from pop art and the retro 60′s prints (just look at the prints on many of our dresses) so when we heard about the latest exhibition featuring Andy Warhol’s Portfolios we knew we had to share it with you!  The exhibition focuses on Warhol’s silk-screen printing period and features iconic portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Muhammad Ali and the infamous rows of Campbell’s Soup Cans.

This is the first time the exhibition of 80 works from 13 portfolios has visited Europe and runs in the Dulwich Picture Gallery until Sept 16th. Andy Warhol once said,

“If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There’s nothing behind it”

So get down to the Dulwich Picture Gallery, to be captured by the dizzyingly bright and decorative prints of a swinging sixties legend! Here is a little video to whet your appetite:
