Marilyn

1967

Andy Warhol (1928-1987) has Slovakian roots and he is a legend of pop art. He is the one who has turned both Marilyn Monroe and Mickey Mouse immortal in art history. In 1967 Andy Warhol established a print-publishing business called Factory Additions. Marilyn was their first print series for which he used the publicity still of an actress and silkscreen printing technique. Silkscreen is a printmaking technique, which got started in China and its history dates back over 1000 years. Yet, Warhol is the one who made silkscreen hugely popular from the mid 20th century onwards. For Marilyn series 5 screens were used, one that carried a photo image and 4, which had a different colour each.

Slovakkia juurtega Andy Warhol (1928-1987) on popkunsti legend, kes on kunstiajaloos surematuks muutnud nii Marilyn Monroe kui ka Miki Hiire. 1967. aastal asutas Andy Warhol trükistuudio nimega Factory Additions ning Marilyni seeria oli selle esimene väljalase. Warhol kasutas Marilyni seeria jaoks näitlejanna avalikkusele mõeldud fotot ning siiditrüki tehnikat. Siiditrükk on trükikunsti tehnika, mis sai alguse Hiinas ning mille ajalugu ulatub 1000 aasta tagusesse aega. Samas on Warhol see, kes alates 20. sajandi keskpaigast siiditrükki ehk serigraafiat populariseeris. Marilyni seeria tarbeks kasutati 5 raami, ühte, millel oli fotokujutis ning 4, millel olid erinevad värvid.
