Andy Warhol in Paris

There are several artists who are famous for creating unique works, impossible to copy, as they have that special touch that makes it a work of art. Andy Warhol, however, is one of those artists who gained notoriety for just the opposite.

On my last trip to Paris, I had the opportunity to go to the exhibition Unlimited at the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville in Paris. Warhol’s works are super impactful for his endless copies in different colors. The work Shadows, for example, is one of the most visited: it is a group of 102 serigraphy canvases, in 17 different colors whose length totals more than 130 meters. It is amazing how the artist has the ability to shock us with a room full of “equal” canvases.

Andy Warhol reflects well that industrial period, of series production – typical of the consumer society. It was this choice for working with woodcuts and large-scale production, in addition to his own technique and style of Pop Art, that made him one of the great artists of the 20th century.

The exhibition also has some interactive installations, such as the photo. You can move and “play” with the balloons scattered around the room. Warhol’s works were on display in Paris until February 7, 2016 at the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville in Paris. It is worth checking!
