Eight Faces of Nigella
mong Pop Art's enduring images are the portraits of Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol. In the 1960s, Warhol created several mass produced images from photographs of celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe. He used different colour combinations to alter the effect and sensation created by the images. These can be viewed as single portraits but more inspiring are the groups of Nine Printed Faces. The Warhol prints inspired Pete with the starting point of this work, a series of nine portraits of the popular TV chef, Nigella Lawson - "Eat your heart out Andy Warhol!"
Each individual portrait is 91cm x 91cm (36" x 36") on board. Each one is created from approximately 3000 used postage stamps.
