Warholizing Old Jacques

January 26th, 2008

Found this great website that converts an ordinary digital picture into an Andy Warhol-style poster. Andy Warhol was the central figure of what we now know as the Pop Art Movement.

According to Wikipedia; He switched to silkscreen prints, which he produced serially, seeking not only to make art of mass-produced items but to mass produce the art itself. jd_warhol3.jpg In declaring that he wanted to be “a machine”, and in minimizing the role of his own hand in the production of his work, Warhol sparked a revolution in art; his work quickly became very controversial — and popular. One of his more recognizable illustrations is that of a portrait of the late Marilyn Monroe.

Back to the Warholizer site; all you have to do is upload a digital picture and after waiting for a short while you get your Warhol Poster. I tried it by submitting an old illustration of Jacques DeMolay, and the picture shown here is what I got.

Try it, it’s hip and fun. Click here to go to the site.
