Andy WARHOL
(U.S.A/1928-U.S.A/1987)
acrylic (silkscreen) on canvas 208.0x292.3cm
@ Andy Warhol shot to fame with his silk-screened repeated images of Coke bottles, soup cans and other mass-produced American consumer items, or the images of famous actors such as Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley. This work is an image of the well-known Elvis, and is an image that was only distributed through television or movies. The mass distribution of images and their consumption is a kind of "fame." Warhol focused on this aspect of contemporary society and was fascinated by it, and his works provided his viewers with a fresh look at this phenomenon.
