Totally Inspired by Andy Warhol Pop Art

For Mother’s Day, my daughter surprised me with one of her hand-painted creations inspired by Andy Warhol pop art. She nailed my love of Starbucks. The painting now stands proudly on my desk (but I get thirsty every time I see it).

When I think of Andy Warhol, I think of Campbell’s Soup Cans, Marilyn Monroe, Coca Cola – all bold brands and personalities who became even larger than life through Andy  Warhol’s talents and color contrasts.

Looking for a video tour of Andy Warhol’s life and works of art? Check out the Warhol: Art app from the The Andy Warhol Museum.


My tween really got into the Andy Warhol spirit through the Popstamatic Pop Art Creator on my iPhone. I had to tear her away from the app so I could get my phone back. (Does anyone else ever have that problem?) Her results are so fun – I might have to print and frame them.

For some laughs and inspiration – check out this video on how to paint a Warhol-inspired pop art portrait using acrylics:


To learn more about Warhol’s life, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts covers his life history and how he was influenced by the turbulent 1960’s and his advertising background.  I didn’t realize until reviewing Warhol’s biography that the concept of ’15 minutes of fame’ originates from Warhol’s quote, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.”

Thanks to Andy Warhol pop art, my daughter found new inspiration for her art and I received a wonderful Mother’s Day gift.
