Digital Warhol Works Unearthed

Recently, digital works by Andy Warhol were “rediscovered” on a floppy disk in Warhol’s archives. New versions of his famous soup cans, rendered digitally provide an interesting and fresh take on his works.

It is interesting to consider how the continued improvement of digital technology may have affected Warhol’s work, had he not died in 1987. The reproducibility of digital media may have appealed to Warhol and his Pop Art aesthetic.

Warhol’s take on Botticelli’s Venus is not only humorous with its third eye, but it also presents a novel aesthetic experience through pixillation.
