Paddle8 announces sale of never-before-seen images in 'Scene: Warhol by Makos'
Andy Warhol at Philip Johnson's Glass House, Digital pigment print, 1981. Est: $2,000-$2,800.

NEW YORK, NY.- Paddle8 announces Scene:Warhol By Makos a dedicated sale of rare and never-before-offered photographs by photographer Christopher Makos. Makos was part of Andy Warhol’s inner circle throughout the 1970s and 80s, capturing many of the iconic images of Andy’s celebrated social scene as well as of Andy himself. The sale includes 18 photographs, each a new edition of 10, offered in a buy-now format on Paddle8, July 18-25.

“Downtown New York in the 70s and 80s wa s dangerous and everything mixed together, fashion, art, music, we were all part of Andy’s scene,” says Makos. “It was all very intimate, and being a photographer is a little like being a psychotherapist, reading people and reflecting back their self-image.”

Makos and Warhol became close friends in the mid-1970s, bonding over their shared love of the new point-and-shoot cameras of the era. Over the next decade, they traveled the world together with Makos taking some of the most iconic and intimate photographs of the artist and his celebrated circle, as well as collaborating on Warhol’s own studied self-image. A central figure in Warhol’s scene, Makos was at the epicenter of downtown New York’s cultural crossroads, documenting the energy and capturing the luminaries of the city’s most legendary creative era.

“Chris Makos was actually there, he was part of the revolving and evolving Warhol world. A participant from the inside, not a late comer from the outside." – Lou Reed.

The sale will be accompanied by an exclusive interview between Makos and Vincent Fremont, the former head of Andy Warhol Enterprises Inc., who reflect on their 40-year friendship, the New York art scene over the decades, the Factory and missing Andy’s sense of humor.

Along with some of Makos’ most celebrated images of Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Debbie Harry and John Lennon, highlights of the sale include five never-before-seen images including:

· Andy Warhol with Bikers, West Side Highway, 1981, Digital Pigment Print. Estimate $2,000-$2,800

· Andy Warhol Kissing Ultra Violet, 1978, Digital Pigment Print. Estimate $2,000-$2,800

· David Hockney, 1977, Digital Pigment Print. Estimate $2,000-$2,800
