Agree or disagree?

Campbels soup replica? Marilyn with 30 seconds of color changes? I'm not buying it.

He's like Picasso. You either think he's a genius or you think he was on crack.

Well that statement could be any groundless opinion, but the general consensus is that Picasso ID FUCKING PICASSO

What did Warhol say with his work? What was his statement?

I think Warhol was great for his time. If he seems like a hack today, it's because of the all the unoriginal art student fags who keep repeating his work as it were something still revolutionary.

There's also the fact that the campbell soup and monroe portraits are an EXTREMELY SMALL PORTION of Warhol's entire body of work.

But youre right, if something is simple, like an elaborate series of screenprints dealing with pop culture, then it obviously means the artist is a hack.

This thread is dated. Andy Warhol's been a hack since the 60's. :wink:
