Quote Challenge October 2018 – Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol born Andrew Warhola; August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987) was an American artist, director and producer who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. (Wikipedia) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Warhol

Andy Warhol was the most successful and highly paid commercial illustrator in New York even before he began to make art destined for galleries. Nevertheless, his screenprinted images of Marilyn Monroe, soup cans, and sensational newspaper stories, quickly became synonymous with Pop art. (The Art Story - Artists Andy Warhol) https://www.theartstory.org/artist-warhol-andy.htm

You may create a pop art page and/or use a quote by Andy Warhol.

See December 2016 Just Art Challenge by jilbert on using gradients to create an Andy Worhol style portrait with different gradient colors.

You may use your favorite quote or use one of the following quotes by Andy Warhol.

Pop art is a way of liking things.

There is beauty in everything, just not everybody sees it.

I’ve never met a person I couldn’t call a beauty.

If you can convince yourself that you look fabulous, you can save yourself the trouble of primping.

You need to let the little things that would ordinarily bore you suddenly thrill you.

Everyone needs a fantasy.

I always notice flowers.

I think everybody should be nice to everybody.

People should fall in love with their eyes closed.

A picture means I know where I was every minute. That’s why I take pictures. It’s a visual diary.

The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do

Don’t think about making art, just get it done

Please upload your page to the Monthly Challenges gallery and post a link back to this thread.

Here is a page I made using one of the color schemes of the iconic Marilyn Monroe series by Andy Warhol.
