Year 9 Design – Andy Warhol
Monday, 05 December 2011
9-4 and 9-5 have been studying Andy Warhol, an American Artist who worked in the second half of the 20th Century. His catchphrase was “In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes”, and he created large screen-printed, colourful images of commercial objects such as tins of soup and icons of the modern day such as Marilyn Monroe and Chairman Mao.
Year 9 designed and cut their own portrait stencils in Warhol’s style, through which they screen-printed a self-portrait onto a t-shirt. They also used the stencils to spray paint their portrait onto collages- bringing the Warhol look up to date, with the influence of a little Banksy and Street Art.
They also created vibrant colour collages with drawing, looking at the Warhol screen-print “Dollar Signs”.
