Drag queens - people, usually men, who use dress and makeup to imitate and exaggerate female gender signifiers for entertainment - were of great fascination to Andy Warhol, who explored the figure through varying mediums, including the silkscreen, photography and performance.
In his early 20s, Andy Warhol began wearing a wig. At first, it was to disguise his hair loss. However, as the years went on, the unique silver wig contributed to his avant-garde mystery, and the wig, a means of concealment, became a recognisable feature of the public figure of the artist.
Artvisor are pleased to present Andy Warhol Photographs 1970 - 1986, viewable by appointment at our London location.
