  1. 1. ANDY WARHOL: POP ART Andy Warhol’s Background Andrew Warhola (August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987), known as Andy Warhol, was an American artist and a central figure in the movement known as pop art. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became famous worldwide for his work as a painter, an avant-garde filmmaker, a record producer, an author, and a public figure known for his membership in wildly diverse social circles that included bohemian street people, distinguished intellectuals, Hollywood celebrities and wealthy aristocrats. Why we chose Andy Warhol: We chose Warhol because he had a very unique characteristic and quite an eccentric perspective, however, in a positive way, toward the things that he saw; and these exceptional qualities had reflected strongly in his work pieces. Moreover, these characteristics also made him stood out amidst all other artists of the pop art era. Warhol loved to play with vibrant colors; he dared combining absurdly contrasting colors in one picture, and most often these pictures turned out to be bizarrely attractive and famous, especially during this century. Warhol, for us, was a good example of a great creative artist and a daring experimenter. We also liked him because his actual work were amazingly colorful, vivacious, and absolutely full of energy. The composition of the poster: We wanted to add some nicely touch texture into our poster, therefore, we decided to hand-paint the background and splatter two contrasting colors (light green and shocking pink were pretty much Warhol’s signature colors) to create some effect. The main picture, which was the picture of Warhol himself, was constructed by a number of small tiles that contained many of Warhol’s famous paintings; for example, Marilyn Monroe’s painting, and this picture of Warhol was intended to be the point of entry of the poster. The information about the place and date were written below in black to tone down other vibrant colored letters written above. The picture of Warhol handling a T.V. on the bottom left corner represented our intention to say that his work were just like they were popping out of that colorful T.V. set since his very own work was pretty much like that, vividly lively. We tried to give some space to the poster by not cramming a lot of objects into it and because we wanted to use so many vibrant colors, thus we didn’t want to create too much clutter and hurt the audiences’ eyes when they look at the poster.
