Moonwalk Trial Proof by Andy Warhol

Warhol’s Moonwalk explores the overlapping boundaries of time. The translucent colors capture your gaze in  classic Warhol fashion. No other artist can transform man’s first steps not he moon, and turn it into a screenshot from a movie.

Warhol created the Moonwalk Portfolio to commemorate the momentous achievement of the first man on the moon. He aptures the magic, drama, and fantasy of the moon walk. He know what the people want and sells it by making the  unknown voyage cool.The  Moonwalk images by Andy Warhol were created in 1987 only months before his death.

Like any other great artist Andy was looking to the future. By using this landmark moment in history as the focus of his art work, he preserves the emotion that everyone felt as one Neil took “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.

More than twenty years after his death, Andy Warhol remains one of the most influential figures in contemporary art and culture. Warhol’s life and work inspires creative thinkers worldwide thanks to his enduring imagery, his artfully cultivated celebrity, and the ongoing research of dedicated scholars. His impact as an artist is far deeper and greater than his one prescient observation that “everyone will be world famous for fifteen minutes.” His omnivorous curiosity resulted in an enormous body of work that spanned every available medium and most importantly contributed to the collapse of boundaries between high and low culture.
