The seventh offering in our new ART WALK Series features a painting by Andy Warhol entitled "Blue and Pink Shoe". Written on the painting is "you can lead a shoe to water, but you can't make it drink." Perhaps that is true but we like to think that a gorgeous shoe painting has been successful in inspiring our dyer to pick up the dyes and create a beautiful colourway!
Andy Warhol’s pioneering Pop Art defined a decade and a culture, distinguishing him as one of the most influential, creative and prolific artists of the 20th century. Originally the most sought-after commercial artist in New York, Warhol (1923 – 1987) is most known for his multiple images of Campbell’s Soup cans, Coke bottles, dollar bills and celebrities, which exalted the beauty within ordinary objects and familiar images. Working out of a studio called The Factory, he invented the silkscreening process which enabled him to mass produce a single image in his signature style. Warhol was also a talented filmmaker, music producer, commercial illustrator, author and magazine publisher. [quoted from Art.com]
