Warhol’s shadows come into the light
Andy Warhol is renowned for his pop art takes on Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe. But this exhibition in Bilbao features his silk-screen canvas paintings from the late 1970s. Warhol was 50 when he started the project and was not impressed at the time, writing in his diary: “The show only looks good because it’s so big.” While the abstract works are more subdued than his pop art classics, they still feature bright and vibrant colours. Warhol completed 102 of the pieces and all are on display at the Guggenheim. Andy Warhol: Shadows runs at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao until October 2.
