About Andy Warhol Limited Edition Green Camouflage Sculpture
As a commemoration of the famous artist of the Pop Art Movement, Andy Warhol, this limited edition sculpture is inspired by Warhol’s 1987 camouflage print series created which he was working on before his death. The camouflage print series was initially created by artists to satisfy military petitions. Warhol was fascinated by the unchanging pattern which at the same time mirrored abstract expressionist painting. The camouflage series by Andy Warhol began when the artist used the camouflage print to cover his face in his self-portraits.
Pop Culture artwork by Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol is without a doubt the first name to come to mind when thinking about the Pop Art culture. His iconic work focused mainly on celebrity culture, artistic expression, and advertisement, which were all prominent in the 1960s. He utilized a variety of media including hand drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, silk screening, sculpture, film, and music.
Warhol also lived openly as a homosexual man before the gay liberation movement began. He had His Factory, where intellectuals, drag queens, playwrights, Bohemian street people, Hollywood celebrities, and wealthy patrons would collaborate.
The Pop Artist produced extraordinarily valuable pieces, including some of the most expensive paintings ever to be sold. While never traditionally thought of as a popular consumer product before, Warhol’s work opened up the ideas of mass-production and mass-appeal into the art world.
