Andy Warhol

Currently on display at the MoMA, this Andy Warhol Self Portriat 1966 really attracted me because of the vibrant use of color. This piece is about 5 1/2 ft in all directions and is composed of nine separate canvases. I know these colors are characteristic of Warhol's art, but the constant of the color red was really eye catching and has a way of unifying all of the separate silk screen squares,tying them into one cohesive piece of art. I also liked this self portrait better than the one we've seen previously in classes. His hand and pose make the composition more interesting for me. Very cool silkscreen ink prints!
