'Warhol Icons' Exhibition, Mayfair

This week the Halcyon Gallery, Mayfair marked the opening of the 'Warhol Icons' exhibition devoted to Andy Warhol. As Warhol is one of my favourite artists, we went along to view the pop-art icon's most famous pieces from consumerism to communism.

The gallery has a range of the artist's pieces including graphics, original works and portfolios. The exhibition explores his early work as a commercial artist and successful illustrator in the 1950s through to his pop art years in the 1960s and then his final work before his death in 1987.

The exhibition features an eclectic mix of iconic figures and celebrities such as screen sirens Ingrid Bergman, Marilyn Monroe and boxer Muhammad Ali, Chairman Mao and even Mickey Mouse (a true icon). Each with their own unique and fascinating history.

If you are a fan of his work, the exhibition is running at the Halcyon Gallery until the 26th June.
