I took this one morning in Florida. I hope it is not too big I forget how to alter the size using HTML.
Yeh, Warhol was REALLY overrated!
I agree he's overrated and he's to blame...he got greedy. Starting out his work was exciting. People anticipated his next piece. A year later it was like he had an epiphany. He realized he could put anything on canvas and some blue blood would pay A LOT of money for it. That's greed. Money should never be considered when producing true art. That comes later if your lucky and will be determined on honest principles whether it's a five dollar piece or a million dollar piece. One more thing then I promise I'll shut up. The photo piece I attached to the thread with the flowers. He produced that piece with 1 flower and 3 ducks or chickens (always groups of 4) 2 flowers and 2 ducks, you get the point. Why in the hell would someone pay nearly four thousand dollars for something that's been duplicated God knows how many time. That's definitely not art. Hell, that's not even talent!
OK... I'm done now. Damn, I feel 10lbs lighter! Thanks for listening...
We definitely needed a Warhol,. If he had never appeared on the scene Pop Art probably wouldn't exist. He was a commercial painter first working for some of the biggest marketing firms in NY. Warhol never suffered for his art. He was successful from the start because he thought outside the box, and because he had talent. He would never be a Picasso or Govan, and I'm fairly certain he never intended to start an art movement. He was a visual artist. He didn't want to stir emotion with his art, he wanted people look at it and enjoy the color and shapes. A totally different concept for an artist. It hadn't been done before, or at least no one had been successful at until he came around.No, we need a Warhol !! I know this lady and her dad hung out with Warhol.
They were all so sweet too. Back when we needed less boring . . and more exciting.
Some of his stuff is just silly. Like him. But a true artiest !!
VERY COOL! I can see why you view him so fondly. Were you able to hang onto to anything that belonged to him? A napkin sketch by an artist that popular would probably be worth a lot!This lady I know from 'here' has a picture of herself when she was a little kid with her Dad and Warhol. Right on the wall in her hallway.
He was just a very close friend with them and her Dad used to . . . yeah and hang out with Warhol. Nothing bad to say.
He was very nice. They were all just eccentric. Very. I just giggled a lot.
