Gold Britannica Skull on Warhol, 2011

Gold Britannica Skull is the first collaboration between Karen Bystedt and an artist. Bystedt asked Tunney to silk screen live at an event at Art Basel in 2011. The original sold that night.

Karen Bystedt:

Karen Bystedt, founder and photographer of The Lost Warhols brings to life one of the greatest art icons of the twentieth century. Shot at ‘The Factory’ in New York City, Bystedt was a student at NYU, working on a book on the top male models of the era, when she cold called Andy Warhol. Andy himself answered the phone and agreed to a rare sitting with Bystedt in the conference room at 'The Factory'.

Bystedt went on to publish four books. Having found the negatives in 2011, long lost since the initial shoot in 1983, in Andy's spirit, Bystedt conceptualized making Andy into the art by collaborating with some of the great artists in the street and pop art genres of today including Peter Tunney, Speedy Graphito, Gregory Siff, Bradley Theodore and Chris Brown.

Permanent collections of the Lost Warhols may be found at The Andy Warhol Museum, the Armenian Museum of Modern Art, the Hearst Foundation, the Astrup Fearnley Permanent Collection and in the private collections of Prince Albert of Monaco, Tomoasso Buti, George Lopez, David Caruso and the Dean Collection (Swizz Beats) among others. With Murals located in Los Angeles. California as well as Houston, Texas.

Peter Tunney:

Peter Tunney is a Neo-Pop artist working with language and text. His large-scale paintings are created from collaged packing materials and newspapers. Drawing imagery and phrases from popular media sources, he created block-letter aphorisms such as “DON’T PANIC” and “THE TIME IS ALWAYS NOW.” This technique references the language-based works of both Christopher Wool and Mel Bochner. Born in 1961 in New York, NY, the former Wall Street executive, and friend of Peter Beard currently lives and works between New York, NY and Miami, FL.

Signed and Numbered. Each artwork will be shipped with a Certificate of Authenticity from The Lost Warhols Collection.
