Today’s Muse: where art inspires life, features the infamous “Pope of Pop,” the one and only…Andy Warhol. Now I am sure everyone is well acquainted with Andy Warhol’s iconic prints of flowers, Campbell soup cans, Coca-Cola bottles, celebrity portraits etc. With examples of them at every major art museum and reproductions on everything from t-shirts to tote bags, coffee mugs, and stationery I’d say it would be difficult to find someone who hasn’t seen Warhol’s work in some incarnation. However, with that being said no one seems to be sick of the “Warhol-overload” in fact it seems people just can’t get enough of the prince of pop.
With innumerable exhibitions to his name, as well as an entire museum dedicated to him in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA, Andy Warhol is undoubtedly one of the most famous artists of all time. His art, with its bold and graphic style, still pleases our eyes today. The world he depicted – commercialized, product driven, and celebrity obsessed continues to be an accurate portrayal. Maybe it isn’t just the aesthetic nature of Warhol’s, bright prints that draw us to his work like a moth to a flame, it is the recognizable image of a soda bottle or soup can that still holds meaning in our consumer nation.
So then I guess it is appropriate for me to further tie Warhol’s work to the commercial world with some fashion inspired by his art.
Bold and bright this artsy, yet mod look is perfect for your next visit to a downtown art gallery or a casual stroll through the park. Can you say flower power?
