Truck 370 by Andy Warhol is a screenprint that was created 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. The image is based off of 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.
