Mosaic portrait of Andy Warhol for the cover of Village Voice in NYC.
I remember that day 25 years ago. I was in the first year of art college in Athens. Ironically enough I had just finished reading his book "The Philosophy of Andy Warhol: From A to B and back". I remember how his ideas about nylon and plastic objects were influencing my view on commercial art. An art more democratic, more affordable, more human even if so in love with the machine...
What I couldn't dream of back in 1987 was that 25 years later I would design an Andy Warhol portrait for the cover of Village Voice in NYC.
