Andy Warhol – Edition Prints – Truck

Sell/Buy Request Info

Andy Warhol Truck is a range of artworks created by artist Andy Warhol.

Warhol’s technique with his pop art consisted of multiple layering of saturated colors to achieve unique looking pictures of manufactured products and celebrities. One wall showcases a variety of different layers Warhol used for one picture of a truck. The truck is translucent and layered over different colored backgrounds in each picture, demonstrating the different ways Warhol could use this technique. In one picture, the background is red, while in another, the background is blue.

When Andy Warhol first burst onto the artistic stage in the 1960s’, he did so by incorporating images that were firmly embedded in the American psyche. His bright and colorful paintings and serigraphs presented images that were commonplace — a soup can or coke bottle — but were transformed by his technique into artistic icons of popular culture. Warhol was most interested in image and not reality, although one could say that by casting these mass produced commercial images in his own unique style, Warhol was making a comment on the reality of living in a world that was dominated by images from the advertising and entertainment industries. Warhol’s prints are in essence images of images. They are at least once removed, and often several times removed, from reality. His famous prints of Marilyn Monroe and Jackie Kennedy, not to mention countless other celebrities, are based on photographs. As in the case with Marilyn Monroe, many of those photographs are of his subjects posing as a character, not as themselves, a subtle reminder that once someone achieves a certain celebrity status, they become further and further removed from their real selves. How many layers must one remove to finally see the real person depicted in a Warhol print?
