About Warhol’s yellow banana as a Pop Art symbol
The story behind The Velvet Underground most iconic album cover contributed to popularizing Warhol’s fruit print. Warhol created the bright yellow banana sticker in 1967 for the cover of the album. At that time, album owners could detach the sticker to let appear the nude-colored fruit underneath. The first record was a commercial success, and Lou Reed attributed it later to Warhol’s contribution. Decades after the band broke up, Warhol’s banana became a strong symbol for the pop culture, and the original peel-off sticker album became a rare collectible.
