Andy Warhol, the leading figure of the 1960s Pop Art avant-garde movement, is now one of the most acclaimed figures of the 20th century. He was a highly skilled multidisciplinary artist, debuting as a commercial illustrator, who originated controversial and necessary conversations on the value of fine versus commercial art. Warhol was obsessed with consumer goods, celebrities and advertising, using every day subject matter to depict a portrait of the America of his time.
The Space Fruit portfolio is a supreme example of that: departing from one of the oldest genres in painting – as is still life –, he masterfully experiments with different mediums such as photography, collage and drawing to create multicolor, refreshing and modern compositions. The vibrantly contrasting colors, the multi-layered textures and the play of shadows convey Warhol’s unique and delightful pop art twist to the pieces. Andy Warhol is still one of the pivotal figures of contemporary art history and highly admired by galleries and collectors.
