WALLS TOKYO ART COLLECTION “A GOLD BOOK:ANDY WARHOL”

NEWSText: Editor

Andy Warhol, A Gold Book, 1957, Offset lithograph, 495 × 415 mm, Ed. 100

artless Inc. will be held a joint exhibition “A Gold Book:Andy Warhol” with Walls Tokyo, an art gallery containing a diverse collection of works by artists from across the globe at artless appointment gallery in Nakameguro, Tokyo from 15th February to 29th March, 2020.

A Gold Book is one of Andy Warhol’s earliest works. As the name suggests, the artwork was originally made as a promotional book with a gold cover. The book showcases Warhol’s early line drawing technique known as the blotted line technique, where he draws on a sheet of paper with ink which is then transferred onto a second sheet, resulting in broken and uneven lines. Although most known for the use of photographs in his later works, the delicate lines and use of color in A Gold Book showcase Andy Warhol’s oft-forgotten gift as a draftsman and reveal a more sensitive side of the artist.

Single-origin coffee and Japanese tea will be served at the adjoining coffee stand, artless craft tea & coffee. Relax and enjoy the art on display with your drink of choice in hand.
