A mammoth Andy Warhol retrospective arrived in Seoul after a long tour across various major Italian cities. The exhibition showcases 153 pieces of Warhol’s rare artworks, including the portraits of Hollywood stars by Warhol such as Marylin Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor. Also, his personal collections, such as the historic album of Velvet Underground & Nico with a single banana, are displayed, giving testament to how Warhol was a pioneering influencer who lived ahead of his time. As Andy Warhol once said, “Everything repeats itself. It’s amazing that everyone thinks that everything is new, but it’s all repeat.” Witness this for yourself by seeing his works, and get surprised repeatedly.
