With a recent Art Market Research study revealing that American pop art is the leader in luxury art investments, the London’s Knightsbridge-based Andipa Gallery is jumping on the trend and making American pop art available to exclusive luxury art collectors from across the globe. Launching a new #WarholOnWaltonStreet exhibit, which will run from May 6th to June 15th, Andipa Gallery has put together a collection of some of Andy Warhol's most iconic works -- including rare and instantly recognizable works of Marilyn Monroe, Mick Jagger, Campbell’s Soup Cans, Jackie Kennedy and Mao -- all of which showcase how he led the Pop Art movement and became famous for breaking social, political and aesthetic norms. Adding to its ingenuity, fans of the American artist’s work will be able to purchase select items in the exhibition, ranging from £20K to £250K per piece. The name of the exhibit further symbolizes its value: Walton Street is one of London’s most upscale and exclusive haunts, just as Warhol’s work exemplifies one of the world’s most exclusive and raved-about artists.
“Art buyers from Europe as well as emerging markets including China, the Middle East and Asia are pursuing the most sought-after works internationally, particularly by some of the most influential artists of the 20th Century such as Warhol” explains Director, Acoris Andipa. Elaborating on the name of the show Acoris explains: “Art investors the world over recognise London’s Walton Street as a prime destination to purchase Warhol’s rarest and most recognisable pieces. Walton Street is Warhol!”
