— Andy Warhol & Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Olympic Rings

With London hosting the 2012 Olympics very soon – and my drive into the Capital ever more testing as a consequence – the city’s Gagosian Gallery have decided to display some appropriate imagery in the form of Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat’s collaborative 1985 Olympic Rings painting. The piece was originally inspired by the 1984 Summer Olympic Games held in Los Angeles and was part of a collaborative series by the two artists which was produced over a two year period. Measuring 81 1/8″ x 183 1/2″, Olympic Rings will remain on display through August 11, 2012.
