Visit with me! #8- The "Andy Warhol, Mechanical Art" exhibition (Barcelona, Spain)

in life •  10 months ago

Hi my steemians friends!

Today, I want to share with you my artistic visit to the exhibition "Andy Warhol, Mechanical Art".

Andy Warhol as an artist was superficial, mechanical, obvious... and as universal as a yawn. Andy Warhol is a magnificent example of a contemporary creator, an outstanding student of Salvador Dalí, and a master of geniuses like Steve Jobs.

This exhibition took place at CaixaForum in Barcelona from 14 September to 31 December 2017.

The display contains a total of 352 pieces, among them paintings, sculptures, drawings, screen prints, installations, artist’s books, films, album covers, posters, magazines objects and photographic material.
All of which belong to museums around the world (Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, MoMA, Pompidou in Paris and the London Tate Museum).



Andy Warhol 1928-1987

Synopsis:
Born on August 6, 1928, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Andy Warhol was a successful magazine and ad illustrator who became a leading artist of the 1960s Pop art movements. He ventured into a wide variety of art forms, including performance art, filmmaking, video installations and writing, and controversially blurred the lines between fine art and mainstream aesthetics. Warhol died on February 22, 1987, in New York City.

From my point of view, Warhol is a "crazy genius artist" like Dalí who was his source of inspiration and his mentor.
Through this work, he speaks of the consumer society as a paradigm. He shows us his vision of things and to make his own analysis. In the same way, As you can see in these photos, Warhol uses various strong symbols of the American society, like the US dollar or like media stars (Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy and Liz Taylor).

Andy Warhol artworks


His famous "Campbell’s Soup Can".



His famous portraits of Marilyn Monroe!



Michael Jackson.



"Three Coke bottles" 1962.
Cola-Cola it's an American symbol and present around the world.



Warhol distorted the image of the Chinese leader, Mao Zedong. This work of art was the biggest of all the exhibition!


Warhol worked on the themes rather around violence, food, desire, recognition, death. No romance or heroism.


Warhol said:

"If there is ever a problem, I film it and it is no longer a problem. It's a film".

If this interests you, here is the video version of the exhibition, which lasts 3:48 min.

I discovered Andy Warhol's works by visiting the Pompidou Museum in Paris and the MoMA in New York! These are two museums that I recommend because they are awesome! This gives me a lot of ideas for future posts ;).

Hello @flamingirl. I looked at your blog and saw it was created relatively recently, in September last year. You became known among the members so quickly. I'm just beginning, I did a post yesterday for which I worked for a few days, but went unnoticed by others. What would be your suggestion to attract more followers? Any answer that can help me is appreciated. Thank you. With friendship, Krystine.

Thanks for sharing this! Such a nice and thorough breakdown of the exhibition and Warhol's ideas, for those of us who are too far away to visit Barcelona.

Amazing post. Loved it. He's and inspiration for so many people. A true artist.

This was an excellent review of the exhibit! I would have loved to see that in person as I have always enjoyed his work. Thanks for the detailed review and great images! :) Following, upvoted and resteemed !

Incredible post, one of the best artists in the world, at one point I felt inside the facilities watching the works, I would love someday to go to that museum.
He managed to break the barriers between art and mass culture.
Warhol was an innovator that transformed into a mere business whose only merit was to be a celebrity and make money.
I invite you to see my artistic work; I'm new to the Steemit community. I would appreciate the support.

very intresting and nice pictures.

thanks for sharing! once upon a time I was living in Barcelona! I like your "# visit with me" posts!! keep send us Barcelona's vibes!!

Excellent work, very pretty, so creative.

Thanks for sharing!
