Converse x Andy Warhol
The world just can’t get enough of Andy Warhol’s bold, intriguing artwork, and all of the accessories still adorned with his prints nearly 30 years after his death have definitely solidified his spot in both art and pop culture history.
Known by many as the “Pope of Pop”, Andy Warhol’s artwork is as relevant today as it was when he first released his creations more than 50 years ago. Andy Warhol (1928-1987) is undeniably best known for his colourful style known as Pop Art, in which he used bright colours to wash over celebrity faces (and much more) to create stunning masterpieces.
Arguably the leading figure of the pop culture movement, the late Andy Warhol is responsible for embracing consumerism to create works of art that glorify every day, mass-produced objects such as Coca-Cola bottles and Campbell’s Soup Cans.
He caused a bit of a scandal and a lot of art critics weren’t too impressed with his work – but Warhol was too busy being the coolest kid in New York and making an obscene amount of money to really care about what they had to say. With that in mind, one day in 1984-6, Warhol famously used the Chuck Taylor All Star as a blank canvas and platform for self-expression.
He silkscreened the iconic silhouette with the message being received that we should ignore convention and be whatever we want to be. To pay homage to the legend, Converse collaborated with The Andy Warhol Foundation back in 2015 to create a collection of wearable art featuring some of the artist’s most iconic prints!
