About Curator Karen Bystedt:
Artist KAREN BYSTEDT started her career as a photographer while she was a student at Tish School Of The Arts at NYU. She photographed, Andy Warhol at the 3rd Factory in 1983 for a book she published on Male models. Moving very often after graduating from Tisch, she lost the Negatives and was able to find 10 of 36 in 2011 in an old corrugated cardboard box. After restoring these, now iconic images ( they reside in several museums), Bystedt conceptualized THE LOST WARHOLS collection by making Warhol into the ART collaborating with contemporary artists around the world to paint on top of her images.
