London-based artist Paul has spent the last decade researching Andy Warhol’s working process and uses Warhol’s original acetates to create his stunning After Warhol collection.
Dubbed ‘posthumous Warhols’ by the world’s leading Warholian authority, Rainer Crone, the artworks were printed in New York by the Pop Art founder’s original screen printer, Alexander Heinrici, and have been lauded by the BBC and VICE Magazine. Find out more about how they’re created here.
In a nod to the decision that brought down the Andy Warhol Art Authentication Board in early 2012, each silkscreen is stamped ‘UNDENIED’ on the reverse. They are also hand-stamped by Paul, in a faithful continuation of Warhol’s own use of a stamped signature.
This particular piece is inspired by Andy Warhol’s ‘Electric Chair’ (1964), which is based on a press photograph of the death chamber at Sing Sing Prison in New York, where Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed for passing details about the atomic bomb to Russia during World War Two. The original work was created at Warhol’s studio in New York and forms part of his Death and Disaster series. Warhol is said to have quipped: “You’d be surprised how many people want to hang an electric chair on their living-room wall. Specially if the background colour matches the drapes.”
