About Warhol’s Banana design
Created in 1967 for the cover of the album The Velvet Underground & Nico, the banana has become one of Andy Warhol’s most iconic prints. The design was originally used as a sticker that allowed album owners to peel the fruit skin. The record was a commercial success and the band, as well as MGM attributed it largely to Warhol’s commitment. Decades after the band broke up, the vintage peel-off sticker album became a rare collector “item as well as Warhol’s banana became a strong symbol for the pop culture.
The banana plush is a collector item that helps perpetuate the legacy of iconic Andy Warhol and The Velvet Underground & Nico pop culture artists.
