Some background on Tea with Andy 

It all started with a photograph taken by Red Saunders, Nina's husband, at London's infamous Ritz Hotel back in 1975. But more on that from the photographer himself... 

Tea With Andy | Hang-Up Gallery

Photographer Red Saunders talks about his experience interviewing and photographing the icon Andy Warhol for the first time. A reproduction of the original photograph was exclusively launched at Hang-Up Gallery, London, with Artist Nina Saunders in February. With special thanks and credit to Asya Gefter and Peter Young for the video.


The original photograph, initially commissioned by the Sunday Times, has never before been publicly displayed and will, for the first time, be showcased this February. Nina Saunders has taken the image and breathed new life into it by reproducing it in a hot pink silk screen, inspired by Warhol’s colour-block reproductions. And that is how the sublime print, capturing a moment in history, came to be.
