This framed poster features an abstract portrait of Andy Warhol in bold, sweeping strokes. Andy is rendered almost entirely in white, with hints of black, orange and yellow to draw out his facial features. Simple in design yet effective in portrayal, this is a masterful work of one of the best known artists of the past 50 years.
Peter Max (born 1937) is, along with Andy Warhol, Roy Liechtenstein and Robert Indiana, one of the most renowned artists working in the Pop Art style. He fled Germany with his family in 1938, spending time in Shanghai, China and Haifa, Israel before emigrating to New York. His work has enjoyed significant commercial and popular appeal, working on projects for 7-Up, the United States Postal Service and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He lives in New York with his wife and continues to produce new work.
Andy Warhol (1928-1987) was one of the premier artists of the second half of the 20th century. He began his career in commercial illustration, a foundation which influenced his work and style, dubbed Pop Art, for the rest of his life. The commercial and consumer elements of Pop Art, plus his nontraditional subject matter, made him controversial in his day. His best known works include direct copies of consumer products (Campbell Soup cans, Brillo boxes) and representations of celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor. Today, his legacy inspires street artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Pop artists such as Jeff Koons and numerous musicians, filmmakers and performance artists.
