About

Andy Warhol’s Camouflage is his final portfolio of screenprints produced before his death in 1987. Warhol put a pop art twist on the recognizable pattern used for American military uniforms with by printing it in his trademark vibrant colors. The bold, bright shades Warhol used are contradictory to the initial purpose of the pattern. Andy’s Camouflage prints are widely considered to be among his most abstract and visually striking works of pop art. He worked closely with his assistant Jay Shriver to produce the images, which were inspired by forms and motifs of military clothing procured by Shriver from an army surplus shop in New York. By replacing the muted palette of camouflage clothing with bright and fluorescent colors that were popular in the 1980s, Warhol appropriated and transformed this military theme into pop art. Camouflage is a portfolio of 8 screenprints with matching edition numbers. Each Camouflage screenprint stamped and signed by Fredrick Hughes, the executor of the Warhol estate, as the portfolio was released after Andy Warhol’s death.

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.
