Camouflage 407

The Camouflage portfolio of 8 screen prints gave Warhol a chance to work with an abstract pattern that was also easily identifiable by Americans. To enhance the recognizable aspects of the camouflage design, he used bright Pop colors. This print features a slight stray from the traditional greens, with additions of blues, signifying the start of a progression away from subtlety into vivacity. Warhol’s play with different color schemes in Camouflage gave each print its own individuality and character. This print is characterized by neutral shades of forrest green, beige and cream, with accents of lilac.

Camouflage 407 as Part of Andy Warhol’s Larger Body of Work

Warhol chose the camouflage design to recognize America’s military participation in the Middle East as well as other war efforts. To the military, the camouflage print was something they relied on to help them disguise their equipment and men. However, Warhol saw camouflage in a different perspective. He wanted Camouflage to attract attention with synthetic colors. As a result, Warhol was approached with many opportunities in the contemporary fashion industry that wanted to achieve bolder statements in their clothing designs.
