Andy Warhol Paintings Get Turned Into Pictograms

Andy Warhol Paintings Get Turned Into Pictograms

Swedish graphic designer Viktor Hertz has created a flat design homage to the king of Pop Art: the Andy Warhol Pictogram Poster, which is currently available via a Kickstarter campaign. It boils down Warhol’s most famous works–many of which are already minimal, composed of only a few bold colors and shapes–into simple pictograms, from the Campbell’s soup can to Brillo boxes to the banana cover for the Velvet Underground. The enigmatic silver-haired artist himself is rendered as a minimalist icon, too.

The pictograms convey the already cartoonish essence of pop art–it would be far more difficult to give a pictogram treatment to, say, an elaborate Breugel composition from the 16th century than to one of Warhol’s tri-colored silkscreens. Buy the poster here for about $18.
