Andy Warhol Exhibition at the De La Warr Pavilion

There is currently an Andy Warhol exhibition on at a local museum, the De La Warr Pavillion in Bexhill-On-Sea, East Sussex. The building is a modernist icon for contemporary arts situated right on the seafront.


I went to the exhibition before Christmas with the children I work with. They had recently been studying his work in art and had made pop art of their faces in the style of this famous picture:

Here are some of my favourites from the exhibition:

There was a whole room of cow, gun and hamburger prints. The kids didn't quite get the meaning of it and I decided not to delve into it, it was a bit graphic! Haha, those people in the photo look scared (google image)!

A portrait of the Chinese leader Mao Tse Tung (1972). 

Kimiko (1981), pretty!

The famous Campbell's soup. 

The man himself. Quite an interesting and rather wacky guy! But think how pop art plays such a huge part in advertising today e.g. the Ipod adverts. It would be strange without it!
