My tribute to Andy Warhol
Andy’s Garden is part of my series, Visionaries: My Tribute to the Innovators of Fine Art. In this image, I explore “Flowers” from the American pop artist, Andy Warhol (1928-1987).
Warhol’s flower series were actually silk-screen prints. He was looking at a magazine with flower images in an article about a new color photography process. He took those images of hibiscus flowers and manipulated them for use in a series of silk-screen prints. The magazine photographer heard about it and sued Warhol for copywriter infringement. It’s ironic that an artist known for his paintings of copyrighted products (Campbell’s soup cans) was sued for copyright infringement on flowers.
I relate to this series of images. For years I was a printmaker and often used silk screen in my artwork. I had a great time exploring “Andy’s Flowers.”
About the Visionaries series
Every museum store in the world carries postcards of their most popular works. I have dozens of these cards featuring every style of painting imaginable.
In this series, Visionaries: My Tribute to the Innovators of Fine Art I explore the artistry of these painters - marrying their iconic images with both abstract backgrounds and ultra-realistic still life objects to create something entirely new.
