Artist of the month

Andy Warhol


Andy Warhol er denne månedens kunstner fordi Astrup
Fearnley museet for tiden har en utstilling av ham. Og selvfølgelig fordi kunsten hans er veldig aktuell. Pop art har en så tydelig og stor påvirkning på mye av det vi ser i dag, innen mote, media, kunst osv. Og Warhol er jo kanskje den mest kjente pop art kunstneren vi har, hvem har vel ikke sett trykkene av Marilyn Monroe eller Audrey Hepburn? Og hvor mange har ikke disse på veggen hjemme...?
Andy Warhol sa "I fremtiden vil alle ha 15 minutter med berømmelse", noe som stemmer ganske bra med hvordan media fungerer i dag, med realityshow, myspace osv, alle kan bli sett og veldig mange vil bli sett. Apropos å se, jeg anbefaler en titt på Warhol utstillingen som vises 13.09- 14.12.2008, Astrup Fearnley Museum of modern art, kanskje best av alt; dette museet har gratis inngang:)




Andy Warhol is this Months artist, beacause he's art is being exibited at the Astrup Fearnley Museum of modern art in Oslo just now. And also because he's art is very relevant. Pop art has such a big influense on
fashion, media, art and so on today, and Warhol mightjust be the most known pop art artist there is, who hasn't seen the Marilyn Monroe ore Audrey Hepburn prints? And how many people have this pictures at their walls at home?
Andy Warhol said: "In the future everyone will have their 15 minutes of fame", he might have been right
, thinking how it is today with reality shows, myspace and so on..
