Artist Andy Warhol’s 1967 screen print of an entrance ticket to the Fifth New York Film Festival at Lincoln Center Philharmonic Hall, with its bold pinks, blues, greens and reds, is an explosion of color which one has come to expect in a Warhol work. And, as the depiction of an everyday object (here, an admission ticket), it perfectly illustrates Warhol’s artistic genius in taking such common objects (like tickets and soup cans) and transforming them into objects of pop art. This is what Warhol became famous doing, and this is why his fame has endured long past his death in 1987.
Warhol (nee Andrew Warhola), 1928-1987, was an American artist who was one of the leading figures in the visual art movement known as Pop art. His numerous works explore the relationships among artistic expression, advertisements and celebrity culture and encompass a wide range of media from painting, print making and sculpting to photography and film.
