BECOMING WARHOL’S PRINCE

Digital artist Duhrivative transformed my portrait into a moving portrait inspired by Andy Warhol’s Prince, 1984. I present both works and the story behind Warhol’s iconic work.

THE ORIGINAL WORK

Prince is a 1984 painting by Andy Warhol. As he did with many other celebrity portraits, Warhol used a publicity photograph of the singer as Prince’s source material. He produced the painting using silkscreen ink and acrylic polymer paint on canvas, an artistic technique commonly used by Warhol- especially from the 1960s onwards.
