8 Andy Warhol at about the age 8, ca.1936

9 Andrew Warhola’s parents immigrated from Slovakia, settling in an industrial area in Pennsylvania that relied heavily on manufacturing. The Warhola Family (Andy at left) ca. 1938

10 Andy was diagnosed with St. Vitus Dance, a disorder of the nervous system, at the age of 8 which kept him home from school for long periods of time. During his ample free time he began collecting movie star photographs and putting them in scrapbooks. He fell in love with Hollywood, photography, drawing, cartoons and magazines. Andy Warhol's autographed photographs of movie stars, ca. 1940

11 Andy was kind of spoiled. One thing his family got him was a camera in 1937. Andy is pictured to the right, above: with his two older brothers John and Paul. below: with his dog Lucy and mother in the background Andy and his brothers Paul (left) and John (right), ca. 1942 Andy Warhol with dog Lucy, ca. 1945

13 1960’s Consumerism Art & Commercialism Printmaking – Screenprinting Recognizable – Celebrities – Brand names

14 Warhol’s interest in Hollywood and popular culture carried over into his art. Warhol used cultural icons and political figures in his art.

15 “What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coca-Cola, Liz Taylor drinks Coca-Cola, and just think, you can drink Coca-Cola, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the cokes are the same and all the cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.”





20 Warhol created works of Pop Art, appropriating imagery from consumer culture and breaking the boundaries between high art and lower forms of visual imagery such as advertising and packaging. Campbell's Soup I: Black Bean, 1968, © AWF Campbell's Soup installation at The Ferus Gallery, 1962

21 Warhol created some of his most famous works from Hollywood promotional photographs and stills. Above, Liz, 1964, © AWF Right, Female Movie Star, Composite, ca. 1962, © AWF

22 Taking the idea of multiple images and Andy’s use of color theory

23 We are going to create our own installation based on the works of Andy Warhol.

24 YOUR ASSIGNMENT You will create a series of digitally colored portraits. Your series must have a minimum of 4 individual portraits. Each portrait must be colored based on some concept of color theory.


26 Each portrait needs a short analysis of your major use of color theory. “I used a green in the shirt and a red-orange in the face because they are very close to a complimentary color set, and I wanted them to contrast each other.” “I chose to use a vivid hue for the face and tints for all my other colors so that the face would be bolder than the rest of the work.” “I used purple, green and orange cuz those are my fave colors.”
