The fourteenth offering in our new ART WALK Series features a painting by Andy Warhol entitled "Stamped Lips ". From one medium to the next, artists express their use of colour. Inspired by Warhol, our dyer has successfully captured the vividness of the colours of the painting.
Andy Warhol’s art defined a decade and a culture. Warhol (1923 – 1987), the founder of Pop Art, was also a filmmaker, writer, actor, music video producer and celebrity. He depicted American mass-produced goods that he loved, revealing the beauty within mass culture. “Lips” embodies Warhol’s belief that popularity is beauty—the allure lies in its repetition. "Isn't life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?" - Andy Warhol [quoted from Art.com]
