Art + Interiors: Wild for Warhol

"Sometimes the little things you don't think are anything when they're happening turn out to be what marks a whole period of your life."  -Andy Warhol
So as you may have noticed, my blog page ends with some cheeky screen printed images from none other than the Pop Art icon himself, Andy Warhol. Warhol's raw, vibrant prints were a huge inspiration to me while in school learning to silk screen. I truly feel that even in a digital world saturated with computer graphics, the luster of hand printed art is unmatched. Plus, Warhol's work reminds me to take life a little less seriously, be in life's little moments...
Warhol's printing of everyday images was a way to express the manufactured world we had come to live in and show the world that art is everywhere. "Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it." I love the way each layer is printed ever so slightly off alignment from the last and his outrageously brazen color combinations.

Like I said, I'm a flower child at heart but I sure wouldn't mind a trip to the early 80's to hang out with Warhol and Edie Sedgwick in their velvet underground. Luckily there are still plenty of Pop Art inspired furnishings out there to satisfy that urge...Enjoy!
