Pop Art innovator Andy Warhol’s close encounter with death inspired him to create several artworks, including his “Guns” screenprint series, which duplicate the type of revolver used when he was almost fatally shot by Valerie Solanas in 1968. “Gun” incorporates the motif of repeatedly printing an instantly recognizable cultural symbol which is a signature style of Warhol (1923 – 1987). Even with no one gripping it, the multiple images of Warhol’s “Gun” suggest its recoil and lethal potential.
Andy Warhol’s pioneering Pop Art defined a decade and a culture, distinguishing him as one of the most influential, creative and prolific artists of the 20th century. Originally the most sought-after commercial artist in New York, Warhol (1923 – 1987) is most known for his multiple images of Campbell’s Soup cans, Coke bottles, dollar bills and celebrities, which exalted the beauty within ordinary objects and familiar images. Working out of a studio called The Factory, he invented the silkscreening process which enabled him to mass produce a single image in his signature style. Warhol was also a talented filmmaker, music producer, commercial illustrator, author and magazine publisher.
