This week challenge is to produce an image in the style of Andy Warhol’s Pop Art.
These examples have been made by Klaus Deisenberger, in GIMP, they can of course also be produced with photoshop or any other photographic program.
If you were to ask people about Andy Warhol, I suppose most would immediately think about the silkscreen portraits. Such as those of Marilyn Monroe or a picture showing a lot of identical soup cans (which are not identical at all, as a closer look would reveal).
It was during the 1960s that Warhol began to make paintings of iconic American objects such as Dollar Bills, electric chairs, soup cans and Coca Cola bottles, celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and Muhammed Ali, Mao Tse Tung also Queen Elizabeth and many others.
Most of his pictures were made as silk screen paintings using only three to four colours, some were made into black and white or monochrome pictures.
How to tackle the challenge
You can choose photos of any simple object for example a portrait, fruit or an animal. Whatever you like and convert it to a Warhol style Pop Art picture.
Following are links to tutorials how to make such images with photoshop or GIMP:
For those not comfortable with these programs there are also apps for mobiles (iOS and Android), just google Warhol App: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nl.fotoview.marilyn&hl=en_US
