Identity - Finding and Breaking the Limits
Updated: Dec 12, 2022
Lockdown creativity has no limits - right now we see lots of celebrity make-up artists and hair stylist giving tips on how to style, cut or colour ones hair and experiment with make-up looks and trying out some fashion styling. This first creative example by Lukas Kroulik from 2004 is inspired by Andy Warhol: it's about being playful with one's identity and finding what others are seeing or want to see.
Warhol's pop culture movement - "The Factory" - drew on the commercialisation of art put on steroids through the advertising industry. My 2007 collage incorporates a classic advert for Cesar, a high-end pet food. In the Factory, Warhol was a replicator - think Campbell's Soups. This pushes even beyond Warhol's boundaries.
