About Medicom Toy VCD Andy Warhol Camo Version
Part of the Japanese collectible toy company, Medicom Toy’s Vinyl Collectible Dolls collection, and in partnership with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, comes to this incredible VCD Andy Warhol Camo figurine, featuring the world-renowned 20th century American Pop Artist Andy Warhol and his iconic camouflage pattern in pink. Andy Warhol is without a doubt one of the most recognized artists of the 20th century and in the history of art. The quintessential American Pop artist was Andy Warhol. An early successful career as a commercial artist and illustrator grounded Warhol in the sensibility and visual rhetoric of advertising and the mass media. This knowledge proved useful for his Pop artworks, which often depicted icons of mass-produced consumer culture, Hollywood celebrities, or immediately recognizable patterns such as the camouflage pattern found in Warhol’s works and in this VCD Andy Warhol Camo figurine. Warhol favored reassuringly familiar objects and people, by also using a visual vocabulary and a printing method that reinforced the image’s connections to consumer culture. The printing silk-screen technique allowed Warhol to print the image endlessly (although often adding variations). Repetition and redundancy in Warhol’s works became representative of the saturation of products and visual elements in American contemporary society. So immersed was Warhol in a culture of mass production that he not only produced numerous canvases of the same image but also named his studio, The Factory.
