Warhol Truck 370
Warhol Truck 370 is a screenprint that was created by Andy Warhol in 1985 as a part of his Truck series, a portfolio of four images. These were published in conjunction with the Bundesverband des Deutschen Guterfernverkehrs to commemorate the twentieth World Congress of International Road Transportation Union. This image is based off a photograph of a truck, but it is colored and detailed in a way to give the print an almost animated look. The image contrasts vivid and monotone colors to create a dynamic composition.
