Turn a regular photo into a beautiful piece of art Almost synonymous with Pop Art, Andy Warhol (1928–1987) was a painter, photographer, filmmaker, and publisher. In the mid-20th century, he produced iconic silkscreen paintings of subjects as mundane as soup cans, as glamorous as Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe; they remain hugely popular and have sparked countless imitations. (The highest price ever paid for a Warhol painting is $100 million for "Eight Elvises," a 1963 silkscreen painting by American pop artist Andy Warhol, sold for $100 million in 2009. $100 million is a benchmark price that only Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Pierre-August Renoir, Gustav Klimt, and Willem de Kooning have achieved. this 1963 canvas titled "Eight Elvises." The private transaction was reported in a 2009 article in The Economist, which described Warhol as the "bellwether of the art market.")
The silkscreen technique forces paint onto canvas through a high-contrast negative stencil attached to the fabric. The resulting image features strong blacks from the photograph, which can be simulated using filter adjustments in Photoshop. In Warhol’s hands, crude blocks of garish, striking color were added to selected areas; completed images were often duplicated with alternative color schemes, as shown below.
