Six Summit Gallery is proud to announce an exclusive showcase of
The Lost Warhols by Karen Bystedt. This is an exquisite rare collection of large photographs of Andy Warhol, taken by Bystedt over 30 years ago that were lost and rediscovered decades later, resulting in a celebratory moment for the art, photography and fashion world.
In 1982, when she was a student at NYU, Bystedt phoned Warhols'
Interview Magazine, and blessed by fate, Warhol himself answered the phone. Bystedt requested Andy sit for a photo session and in an unlikely occurrence, he agreed. The photos were forgotten for over 30 years and finally the painstaking process of restoring them has been completed, and now they are able to be enjoyed by the world, in their original form and in newly created mixed media.
The Lost Warhols collection consists of the original photographs, and stunning current collaborative mixed media pieces, some over 4 feet by 4 feet, by Bystedt and well known contemporary artists including: Tommii Lim, Dom Pattinson, Peter Tunney, and others. They been featured at New York Fashion Week, Art Basel, Hayari Paris and works have been purchased by The Warhol Museum, Prince Albert of Monaco and other noteworthy collectors.
Bystedt is a world renowned photographer who has published several books, and has photographed celebrities in and out of the art world including: Brad Pitt, Drew Barrymore, Johnny Depp, Sandra Bullock, Robert Downey Jr. and more.
The show is curated by Leo Feroleto, director of Six Summit Gallery, curator of: Fields Studios/Compleat Sculptor-the largest comprehensive sculpting facility in America and Art Hearts Fashion-the largest fine art and fashion platform in Miami, New York and LA.
As Andy Warhol was a designer, fashion/style icon and artist, the show will be hosted at Woody Michleb Beauty Salon in Palm Beach, a platform that infuses the love and appreciation of Art, Fashion and Beauty together with a stunning venue fitting of this beautiful collection. The exquisite show is available for viewing at your leisure from Jan 7th– Feb 27th2019, Tuesday - Saturday, 9am to 6pm with special opening receptions January 24th 5-8PM, and Valentines Day February 14th 5-9PM.
