Andy Warhol is known for taking simple objects and enhancing their appearance and meaning. Warhol used glittery, multi-colored arrangements against black backgrounds for his paintings of shoes. He drew imagitive images of shoes for retail stores. He started off using diamond dust for the "diamond dust shoes" but it came out too chalky. Then he replaced it with embedded sparkling pulverized glass. I chose this painting because he made something so simple, so colorful and interesting.
