Pixels Meet Paint in “Shinobi Marilyn”

Marilyn Monroe is an enduring icon of fame and glamour, thanks in no small part to artists like Andy Warhol who manipulated her image to make their own commentaries on fame and glamour. Right now at the Emily Amy Gallery, there is an exhibition that once again takes Monroe as its subject, and does so in a thoroughly modern way.

Artist Ashley Anderson has assembled an exhibit of almost fifty pieces centering on the singular image of Marilyn Monroe’s face, but through the filter of video game art. WABE’s Myke Johns paid the gallery a visit to speak with the artist about the virtue of repetition.

“Shinobi Marilyn” is showing at the Emily Amy Gallery now through September 1st. For more information, visit the gallery’s website here.
