Andy Warhol 

Andy Warhol was known for creating art that featured everyday objects, like soup cans and flowers, and pop culture figures during the time he lived, like Elvis and Marilyn Monroe. By using images that most people knew about or related to, he made art that everyone could understand. Warhol would often use screenprinting to create multiples of his art. Like the objects and people he portrayed, this type of art could be easily mass-produced.

Use printmaking techniques to create an artwork inspired by Warhol’s screenprinting process.

Takashi Murakami

Takashi Murakami is known for mixing traditional Japanese painting with pop culture elements, like anime, toys, and video games. His artwork often looks very playful and bright, but can sometimes have a darker meaning as you start to look closer. This activity is inspired by Murakami’s Hustle'n'Punch By Kaikai And Kiki. In this artwork he uses similar characters, but changes their facial features to depict a wide range of emotions.

Grab a character and add different facial features to create your own Murakami-inspired work of art.
