Bringing Andy Warhol's work to life: Paul Stephenson

One of the things we love at Castle Fine Art is a fantastic story behind a collection. And it may be hard to top that of London-based artist Paul Stephenson, whose After Warhol collection has seen him dedicate over a decade to rendering the methodology of Andy Warhol using his original acetates. Described as 'posthumous Warhols' by the world's foremost Warhol expert, Professor Rainer Crone, the works ask important questions about the authorship of art. 

Paul's new medium of silkscreens on paper is in keeping with the Pop Art founder's philosophy (and our own!) that art shouldn't just be for the elite. Paul adds: "Warhol wanted his art to be accessible so everyone could own or enjoy it. An art gallery on the high street selling Warhols in 2020 is pure Warhol."

Working with Alexander Heinrici

For the collection, Paul collaborated with Warhol's original printer. 

He explains: “It has been a privilege to have collaborated with Alexander. The last ten years have been like an apprenticeship, and I’ve accessed a box of secrets of what it was like to work alongside Andy Warhol.

"I’ve absorbed all I can from someone who was there originally, and it’s fantastic that he could inform my artistic process.”

ABOUT SILKSCREEN PRINTING 

"I think Warhol would have a huge grin on his face and love everything about After Warhol."
