"Holy masterpiece, Batman!"

We can imagine that's what Burt Ward would say to Adam West upon seeing his new art exhibit. 

As it turns out, the 88-year-old actor has taken some time of late to create abstract paintings, ranging from notable Batman villains from the classic 1966 series to tranquil landscapes.

From now through Thursday, December 22, the paintings will be on display in the "Criminals on Canvas" exhibit at the Gilman Contemporary studio in Ketchum, Idaho. Eleven canvases will be on display, ranging in price from $3,000 to $9,800. 

If West sells all his paintings, he'd make close to $70,000. 

There are some familiar faces in the exhibit. West painted abstract portraits of the Riddler, Penguin and Joker, all of whom appeared on Batman during its three-season run in the late 1960s. 

There are some unfamiliar faces too. Take a look below at the painting to see what we're talking about.
