Andy Warhol created his Truck portfolio if 1985. The portfolio consists of four variations of a Truck printed in vibrant colors. True to his pop art style, Warhol printed the truck on a solid colored background, with bold outlines to create the details on the vehicle. Truck was published in conjunction with the Bundesverband des Deutschen Guterfernverkehrs to celebrate the 20th World Congress of International Road Transportation Union. The translucent image of Truck is brought to life by Andy Warhol’s use of bright, contrasting colors and linework that gives the sense a three-dimensional look.

About Andy Warhol

Obsessed with celebrity, consumer culture, and mechanical (re)production, Pop artist Andy Warhol created some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. As famous for his quips as for his art—he variously mused that “art is what you can get away with” and “everyone will be famous for 15 minutes”—Warhol drew widely from popular culture and everyday subject matter, creating works like his 32 Campbell's Soup Cans (1962), Brillo pad box sculptures, and portraits of Marilyn Monroe, using the medium of silk-screen printmaking to achieve his characteristic hard edges and flat areas of color. Known for his cultivation of celebrity, Factory studio (a radical social and creative melting pot), and avant-garde films like Chelsea Girls (1966), Warhol was also a mentor to artists like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. His Pop sensibility is now standard practice, taken up by major contemporary artists Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami, and Jeff Koons, among countless others.
