Three Pages of Warhol Artwork

Andy Warhol's pensive self-portrait.

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. In Warhol’s hands, crude blocks of garish, striking color were added to selected areas; completed prints were often duplicated with alternative color schemes, as shown below.

Creating Pop Art-inspired images with Adobe Photoshop (the best software available for creating Warhol effects) is easy and enjoyable for Warren Camp. You'll find a number of Warren Camp's custom Warhol-effect images on page 3.
