Artist and designer Shine has reinterpreted Andy Warhol’s iconic self-portrait using 15m of pink tulle fabric which has been pressed, pulled and pleated.


The piece 15 Meters of Frame references Warhol’s ‘everyone will be world famous for fifteen minutes…’ quote and says Shine ‘is a great challenge but also a worthy excuse to experiment with colour and scale.’
