Exhibition combining rare and original work by Andy Warhol and Mauro Perucchetti opens at Halcyon Gallery
Silver Liz by Andy Warhol (1963).


LONDON.- Halcyon Gallery presents a unique exhibition combining rare and original work by Pop Art icon, Andy Warhol, and Italian contemporary artist, Mauro Perucchetti. Famous for his extravagant personality and for perfecting the modern technique of silk-screening, Warhol depicted the relationships between the public, the effect of visual repetition and advertising, and the role of celebrity. Perucchetti elevates Pop Art to a new level; infusing beautiful and familiar imagery with advanced artistic technology, his subject matter tends to protest against, and even mock, the contemporary society in which we live.

Brought together for the first time and situated alongside each other within the exhibition, these two artists create an exciting and aesthetically pleasing environment but more importantly, encourage a responsive dialogue between their work. This dialogue speaks to the historical importance of Warhol’s artistic developments and subject matter and also to Perucchetti’s depiction of, and playful disappointment in, present consumer society. Both creative pioneers in their fields, this duality offers a taste of Pop Art then and now and steers a course from the origin to the future of the genre.

Opened at 144-146 New Bond Street, London, the Warhol / Mauro exhibition includes a collection of new work by Perucchetti as well as iconic and previously unseen Warhol’s.

“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.”
― Andy Warhol
