Andy Warhol Caricature

Andy Warhol With a Wig

Andy Warhol With a Wig

I love Andy Warhol. He ranks with Piccasso and Duchamp as one of the three most influential artists of the 20th century. He destroyed painting, fineart and the concept of the artist as a singular original creative force. He also glorified the art of the mind. Fineart stands as the highest expression of western culture. And by destroying it he shows his disgust with western military, cultural and economic  imperialism. This is a caricature of him with a giant scarred mechanical nose. He was extremely self conscious of his looks and it controlled his life. He wore an ill-fitting white wig and spoke in interviews with a mechanical manner. All of his artistic power came from his giant scarred red nose.
