I’m for mechanical art. When I took up silkscreening, it was to more fully exploit the preconceived image through commercial techniques of multiple reproduction. —Andy Warhol
Printmaking was a vital artistic practice for Andy Warhol. Prints figure prominently throughout his career from his earliest work as a commercial illustrator in the 1950s, to the collaborative silkscreens made in the Factory during the ‘60s and the commissioned portfolios of his final years.
