Andy Warhol

Info

Andy Warhol (born 1928) is probably the best-known exponent of the American Pop Art. His work is included in almost every renowned collection of modern art as well as displayed in numerous international exhibitions. Galerie Klüser has been working with Andy Warhol from 1980 until his death in 1987 and is representing the artist until today. Furthermore, Bernd Klüser published several of Warhol’s series (paintings and prints), for instance the Joseph Beuys Portraits, the Details of Renaissance Paintings and the Lenin series. Warhol, who studied commercial art in Pittsburgh, first of all built up a reputation as a graphic designer in New York. Not until the 60s he became generally known as an artist. Using the technique of screen-printing Warhol duplicated portraits and motives borrowed from mass media, advertisement and art. In the process he modifies the original image by making use of stencil printing, high vibrant colour compositions and magnification. That way he turned the commercial depiction into a work of art on canvas. Nevertheless, the technique and the serial production maintain the perception and processing of mass media. In this context Warhol founded his own open space studio in Manhattan named “The Factory”. At the same time Warhol surrounded himself with artists and actors with whom he produced movies such as „Tarzan and Jane Regained, Sort of…“ (1964) that showed bizarre scenes from every day life while questioning the Hollywood star cult. By the end of the 60s, Warhol founded his own mass media with the magazine “Interview”, which is still published monthly.
