A graphic workshops by Agnieszka Łakoma

In his prints, Andy Warhol re-used motifs known from the so-called popular culture, such as the images of Marilyn Monroe, Campbell soup can or Mickey Mouse. By taking them for the subject matter of his works, he elevated them to the rank of high culture. On the other hand, the motifs borrowed from the Renaissance painting – considered high art – were brightly coloured, multiplied and labelled as cosmetic or food products. Consequently, he diminished their significance and turned them into regular products. A technique of serigraphy which he mastered allowed for easy multiplication of images. The workshop by Agnieszka Łakoma will be devoted to the before-mentioned printing technique. The participants will be introduced into the arcane of serigraphy and encouraged to create their own prints inspired by the works of Andy Warhol.
