I received an e-mail today from Fine Art America that said just that: “Introducing … Monica Warhol.” I didn’t realize there was another Warhol making art, but according to a press release: “Monica Warhol, a member of the world famous Warhol family, began her career as an artist in Pittsburgh as did her famous cousin Andy Warhol. Her vision as expressed in her art includes artistic, social, commercial and philanthropic themes blended in a unique style.”
A glance at her website shows a photographic homage to her cousin, as she is dressed in a familiar striped shirt, leather jacket, and sunglasses, as you can see in the picture of Monica flanked by 2 images of Andy, below.
So, what kind of art does Monica Warhol make? I guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise that her portfolio includes a Campbell’s Tomato Soup can, below left. And for good measure, we’ll throw in a “Cotton Candy Colt,” below right. In another homage to her cousin, she has “Warholisms” – or quotes – on her website, including this one: “I live in a bubble, but that’s ok, because I am the one who blew it.” To see more, visit www.monicawarhol.com.
