Andy Warhol's artistic talent covered many types of visual media. But he is probably best known for his screen printed artwork. His iconic, screen printed images of Campbell's Soup cans and movie stars such as Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor revolutionized modern art.
American Screen Printing Association recently had the privilege of interviewing Tresa Varner, Curator of Education of The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA. She discussed with us the screen printing techniques utilized by Andy Warhol and was kind enough to supply us with the information that we needed to present these articles.
In our three part series on Andy Warhol, we present his biography, a tutorial on Pop Art, and a tutorial of his screen printing technique.
