Andy Warhol
Camouflage (FS II.410)

About

CAMOUFLAGE FS II.410 Warhol’s Camouflage portfolio of 8 screen prints features variations of the camouflage pattern with great use of a variety of bright, fluorescent colors. Warhol chose to work with this design because it was an abstract pattern that was also immediately recognizable. With the rising popularity of this print, Warhol was able to address its growing significance with America’s continuing military involvement in the Middle East. However, he took a different approach in producing camouflage patterns, which are typically used for disguise, by transforming them with eye-catching colors. This Camouflage print uses pink, orange, and purples, rather than the traditional green hues seen on military outfits. CAMOUFLAGE FS II.410 AS PART OF ANDY WARHOL’S LARGER BODY OF WORK Warhol created this portfolio to revolve around America’s military involvement in war; however, he also created juxtaposition with his versions of camouflage designs. The bright color use greatly contrasted the origins of camouflage, which were meant to conceal. Warhol introduced the opposition of disguise and identity. With this idea, the new camouflage attracted opportunities from the fashion industry. Bold colored camouflage soon became popular as it helped women stand out in urban settings.

About Andy Warhol (Artist)

The name of American artist Andy Warhol is all but synonymous with Pop art, the movement he helped shape in the 1960s. He is known for his clever appropriation of motifs and images from popular advertising and commercials, which he integrated into graphic, vibrant works that utilized mass-production technologies such as printmaking, photography and silkscreening. Later in his career, he expanded his oeuvre to include other forms of media, founding Interview magazine and producing fashion shoots and films on-site at the Factory, his world-famous studio in New York.


     Born and educated in in Pittsburgh, Warhol moved to New York City in 1949 and built a successful career as a commercial illustrator. Although he made whimsical drawings as a hobby during these years, his career as a fine artist began in the mid-1950s with ink-blot drawings and hand-drawn silkscreens. The 1955 lithograph You Can Lead a Shoe to Water illustrates how he incorporated in his artwork advertising styles and techniques, in this case shoe commercials.


     As a child, Warhol was often sick and spent much of his time in bed, where he would make sketches and put together collections of movie-star photographs. He described this period as formative in terms of his skills and interests. Indeed, Warhol remained obsessed with celebrities throughout his career, often producing series devoted to a famous face or an object from the popular culture, such as Chairman Mao or Campbell’s tomato soup. The1967 silkscreen Marilyn 25 embodies his love of bright color and famous subjects.


     Warhol was a prominent cultural figure in New York during the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s. The Factory was a gathering place for the era’s celebrities, writers, drag queens and fellow artists, and collaboration was common. To this day, Warhol remains one of the most important artists of the 20th century and continues to exert influence on contemporary creators.
