Week 12- Artist- Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol is definitely someone who is passionate about their artwork, although some people beg to differ. Warhol has created more pieces of art than any other artist, which is why people think that his work is lazy and that he doesn’t put much effort into it. I however, think that Warhol’s art is very inspiring. He takes his artwork to a whole new level and uses a lot of bright pastel colors. He also takes some already made artwork, and puts his own spin on it.

This is an example of Warhol putting his own spin on a symbol already made. The Rolling Stones usually use the colors red, white, and black. Warhol changed it by added more intriguing colors, but kept the overall symbol the same. He had a lot of fascination with the Hollywood scene, which is why a lot of his art is of celebrities such as Marylin Monroe.

One thing that stuck out to me about Warhol is that his art came in many forms. He used a lot of media such as hand drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, silk screening, sculptures, film and music. This is a lot of work to incorporate these things in your art, and on top of that he produced his work very quickly. Overall, I think Warhol’s work is flashy and easy on the eye. I feel like a lot of people are drawn to his art and have seen it around a lot.
