Cultural Icon: Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol not only saw things differently than most, but his works forced the American public to look at things differently. Once Warhol’s 32 Campbell’s Soup Cans were displayed on the wall of a Los Angeles gallery in 1962, the country became plunged into a Pop Culture controversy that resulted in Warhol becoming the highest priced living artist of the 20th century.

Hunt Slonem’s Fascination with Exotica

Posted on by

Hunt Slonem believes that repetition in his art, like the repetition in religious rituals, gives his work a spiritual element. And though Bunnies may seem a whimsical subject, Slonem’s quick, easy brushstrokes evoke a feeling of tenderness for his subjects and show a mastery of his art.

Damien Hirst Sculptures

Damien Hirst is the best bad boy in the art world today. He was even badder in his younger years, when he hung out with Joe Strummer of the Clash and partied in the world of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Before Strummer’s death, Hirst cleaned up his act, but he’s still obsessed with the way we, in the western world, interact with drugs.

Robert Indiana Art for Sale at VFA’s Boca Raton Gallery

When contemplating the distinct characteristics of the American Pop Art movement founders, Robert Indiana very likely stands as the artist of deepest intent. While Indiana’s works contain the cool simplicity and broad appeal that defines the genre, his intentions have always carried a certain weight and sincerity that is considered by many to be a bit out of step with the mainstream Pop Art sensibility.

Frank Stella Prints For Sale

Frank Stella: What You See

Frank Stella gave us a new point of view, a new way of looking at a work of art. “What you see is what you see” is the way Stella broke it down. Stella arrived in New York in 1958, at age 22, after completing a history degree at Princeton. During that period, the art galleries he visited were filled with the paintings of abstract expressionists and pop artists who were exploring new ways of creating, and thinking about, art. […]

Banksy, the Greatest Living Briton

“Sometimes I feel so sick at the state of the world,” Banksy wrote in his book, Wall and Piece, “I can’t even finish my second apple pie.” That pretty much reflects the work of Banksy: provocative, discomforting, funny and well-crafted.

Banksy is one of the most well-known artists in the world, yet most people don’t know who he is or what he looks like. What we know about Banksy is what he’s told us in his books, films, the few interviews he’s given and, of course, his art.

Ed Ruscha: Still Disarming

At age 77, Ed Ruscha is still putting a lot of thought…and a little bit of mischief… into his work. Ruscha is a masterful print artist, painter, filmmaker and photographer. The Mark Twain Quote lithograph, one of the Ruscha’s available in our gallery as of this writing, is a fine example of the thought and humor that goes into each of his works. Using a Mark Twain quote, The Ancients Stole All Our Great Ideas, shadowing it with its German translation on a gradient background, makes the visual impact of Mark Twain Quote very powerful and does what Ruscha intends to do with all of his work: “Art has to be something that makes you scratch your head.” he said.
