Window into the Mind of Andy Warhol, 2017

For this Lost Warhol oil painting, artist Maxim layers textures of molding paste and oil on Bystedt's image to create the Window to the Mind of Andy Warhol through Maxim's eyes.

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.


Maxim was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, during communism. Growing up under an oppressive regime, Maxim developed an undying conviction to uphold the truth and the need to stand for all injustice. His work in oil reflects the struggle between the despondency and longing for the prospect of mankind. Maxim Havlíček, known by his artist name stylized as MAXIM.
