The other day I was walking aimlessly around Downtown Los Angeles and I saw a colorful portrait of Andy Warhol in a window and I could hear him say to me, “Come inside.” Being a huge fan of The Factory and Warhol’s work I had to check it out. I walked into the pop-up gallery “Kings & Queens” to stare in amazement at the mixed media artwork that stood before my eyes.
Inside were photographs of Warhol taken by Karen Bystedt in 1982, combined with photographs of Jean-Michel Basquiat taken by Brad Benson in 1984. Bystedt then combined mixed media art to create some amazing pieces. The pop-up gallery is open until April 31st, and if you’re a fan of pop art, graffiti, or mixed media I highly suggest you stop in. While you’re there you can also check out artwork by Chris Brown and Maxim.
