Andy Warhol needs no introduction, he spearheaded the definition of art, celebrity culture in an age where advertisement and pop culture first made an impact on the world, let alone America in the 1960s. Most prominently, he led the visual art movement now known to us so popularly as pop art. Today, in Kuala Lumpur, many decades later, The Ryan Foundation, an establishment based in Singapore supportive of nature and art education, revives his work in a refreshing and contemporary platform to the discerning art community of Kuala Lumpur with a ‘social circus’.
From original portraits to his famous silkscreens, the Foundation is proud to present a stellar collection which also includes some of Warhol’s private collection, finely curated to showcase the best of an iconoclastic artist and individual that was a vision of his time. His lasting impact at present day has only proven the relevance of his work and essentially, how timeless it has become throughout time.
Founding Director of The Ryan Foundation, Ryan Su enthuses, “I expect visitors to take away a sense of awe when they see the diverse and expansive artistic practice of Warhol. It is amazing that Warhol’s work is still relevant today.”
