Andy Warhol, Eduardo Cortes

By using mass-produced objects as his inspiration, as well as relying on screen printing rather than painting, Warhol abolished the principal of artistic originality, instead utilizing images familiar to everyone and practices almost anyone could repeat.

Nikki Anderson's Artist Presentation

Widows and Orphans 1919.jpg kollwitz_death.jpg kathe.jpg

Kathe Kollwitz, was a German painter, printmaker, and sculptor. She drew her inspiration from real life and depicted everything she saw in all reality. She empathized for the poor and depicted those victimized by poverty, hunger and war through her drawing, etching, lithography and woodcuts. Her work is very dark but communicates a clear message to the viewer and universally understood.

Laura Artist Presentation: Keith Haring


For my presentation I chose the artist Keith Haring. Though I've seen his recognizable images before, it wasn't until very recently that I learned of his art and its history and meaning. Haring was a young artist that dealt with many social issues including homosexuality and AIDS. He was diagnosed with AIDS and died two years later from related complications. During that time, he used his art to promote awareness and acceptance for the AIDS cause. He also started the Keith Foundation that benefits AIDS-related charities as well as other children's charities.


Keith's art has a very distinct style with bold lines and bright colors. He uses motifs that he creates to make complex surface patterns. Much of what Haring creates is either marker on paper or acrylic on canvas, lending itself to the clear, defined lines. I love the movement in his art. You eye can't stop moving. How cool is it that these simple little outlined people can look so alive, and in many cases, convey an important message.
