He stylised a canned product into an art motif. As well as famous personalities such as Marilyn Monroe or James Dean. We are talking, of course, about Andy Warhol – probably the most important representative of the American Pop Art scene. His works are legendary because Warhol knew how to combine the profane with the artistic. He took things out of the pop cultural context and made an image of them by screen printing, which he painted with bright colours and thus alienated them. For Warhol, this was a moderate means of exercising criticism. In doing so, he mirrored the distortion of reality he suspected in media reporting. Catherine Ingram and Andrew Rae now honour the extensive legacy of the pop artist with a book that, in addition to loving illustrations, has opted for an approach that is at least as affectionate. For the works are united in a hidden object picture in the Wo-ist-Walter style. Only with Warhol.
