Marilyn Diptych at Tate Modern


Medium: acrylic paint on canvas

Size: support (each): 2054 x 1448 x 20 mm

Marilyn Monroe died in 1962, having overdosed. After that, he made a series of silkscreen paintings of her, based on the same publicity photography from the film called "Niagara." He found the fusion of two of his compatible themes: the cult of celebrity and death. The image shows strong contrast between colour and black and white. Overall, the work related to Monroe’s life and death.

New York art world was in a rut, the very original and famous canvases of the abstract expressionist have become cliche. Warhol was one of the artists that felt the need to bring back imagery into his work, so he painted the objects that people use every day.

Andy Warhol was a successful ad designer. He used the techniques of his trade to create an image that is easily recognizable, but also visually stimulating.

Canary Wharf is a business-related area. Most people who come here are usually office workers or businessman. The atmosphere is filled with beautiful buildings structure and people are hustling. I took many pictures of the building and people

was an American artist, director, and producer who was a leading figure in the visual art known as pop art. I like his ideas how he illustrates his work form the original picture.
