Atlanta-based artist Ashley Anderson announced this morning through his Facebook page that he has sold three pieces of artwork to the High Museum of Art. That work comes from a series the artist first showed in 2012 called “Shinobi Marilyn,” and consists of variations on Andy Warhol’s portraits of Marilyn Monroe, pixelated, as if in a video game.

WABE’s Myke Johns spoke to Anderson about that work back in 2012 at the Emily Amy Gallery. Our original story on the artist’s work can be found here.
