Polaroids shot by Andy Warhol

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Photography on Tuesday 9 July 2013

Yes, even the irrepressible Andy Warhol once snapped his fair share of Polaroids. They might not have been meant to be actual artwork — apparently they were meant to be aids for prints and portraits — but they still offer a pretty fascinating glimpse into Warhol’s art process.

Mangled depictions of pop culture by Ryan Trecartin

Kim Talon Reader Find

By Kim Talon in New Art on Monday 28 January 2013

Iʼm obsessed with video artist Ryan Trecartin, or rather, his awe-inspiring and mangled depictions of popular culture. There is no way to really explain the way he consumes and re-expresses the media as a whole. You just have to watch it for yourself. I saw some of his work as part of the Andy Warhol […]

The United Warhol Project at the Odyssey Theatre in LA

Didu Losso Contributor

By Didu Losso in New Events on Wednesday 31 October 2012

This is an explosive multi-disciplinary performance piece about the life of Andy Warhol. Using cabaret, documentary, fashion, and movement pieces, the show at the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles explores a narrative of America and its relationship to fame and celebrity from post-World War II, 1960s and 70s gay disco culture, to the celebrity-soaked world of the 1980s. Even better: it’s all scored with music from the Velvet Underground, 1970s disco, and Polish-Czechoslovakian folk music.

Campbell’s reveals special edition Andy Warhol cans

Darwin Cosico Contributor

By Darwin Cosico in New Design on Monday 3 September 2012

We’re all familiar with Campbell’s Soup Cans, a work of art produced in 1962 by American artist Andy Warhol. Since then, he has done some work for the soup maker until his death in 1987. Over the past years, Campbell’s sales have dwindled due to numerous factors and it’s now looking at Warhol to boost sales. The world’s biggest soup maker has recently announced that they will release a series of Andy Warhol special edition cans bearing labels reminiscent of the pop artist’s paintings. The special edition cans will be sold at Target stores in the US and will cost 75c each.

The Beautiful People series by Shehzil Malik

Shehzil Malik Reader Find

By Shehzil Malik in New Illustration on Saturday 26 May 2012

As an illustrator and graphic designer, I find that whether it’s through their art or music, there are some personalities that simply change the way you look at the world. In an attempt to pay homage to their talent, I’m working on a series of illustrations featuring the likes of David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Andy Warhol and Salvador Dali. My work tries to capture the essence of their work, and at times imagines what they’d do in our current technology-savvy age. Warhol on Facebook? But, of course.

Is this really beautiful?

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Photography on Thursday 22 March 2012

Yes, this is a real photo of a real event that happened back on May 1, 1947, when 23 year-old Evelyn McHale wrote a poignant note to her fiancee (‘He is much better off without me. I wouldn’t make a good wife for anybody’), left a small collection of personal items on the observation platform of the Empire State Building, then leapt to her death, landing, as fate would have it, on the roof of a United Nations limousine. This remarkable, untouched photo was taken in the immediate aftermath by a passerby – photography student Robert Wiles – and ran shortly afterwards in Life magazine. Years later, Andy Warhol commemorated the event with a typically striking artwork, pictured below. [Lifeline 131 114 and beyondblue 1300 22 46 36 are available for anybody who needs, or thinks they may need, help with depression]

Beautiful Darling: documentary about Candy Darling

Jordan Galland Reader Find

By Jordan Galland in New Film on Saturday 7 May 2011

Walk On The Wild Side and Candy Says being among the most influential songs in rotation on my Walkman during my formative years, and having had a deep fascination with Warhol and the New York of the 70s and early 80s (I moved here in 85, so I caught the tail end as a kindergartener), I was drawn to this documentary and laughed and cried the whole 90 minutes.
