GOOD CATHOLIC BOY

«Andy went to church every Sunday. A lot of his friends were Catholic. He may have related better to us Catholics becase we all have the same background: mass, priests, nuns, Catholic school, a sense of guilt. His religion was a very private part of his life».

Warhol by Makos

«I BELIEVE MEDIA IS ART» ( THE WHITE ALBUM)

Richard Hamilton, a notable pop artist who had organized a Marcel Duchamp retrospective at the Tate Gallery the previous year, was responsible for the albums original sleeve design. It is the only sleeve of a Beatles studio album not to show the members of the band on the front. His design was in stark contrast to Peter Blake’s vivid cover art for Sgt. Pepper, and consisted of a plain white sleeve with the band’s name discreetly embossed slightly below the middle of the album’s right side. The cover also featured a unique stamped serial number, “to create,” in Hamilton’s words, “the ironic situation of a numbered edition of something like five million copies.”

«Paul McCartney requested the design be as stark a contrast to Sgt Pepper’s day-glo explosion as    possible… he got it!»

-Richard Hamilton

KEITH HARING ON MADONNA

«I knew Madonna from before. We were in that scene in the lower East Village at the same time. She was just starting. She used to go out with Jellybean [Benitez, now a record producer], and I'd see her sing at the Fun House, where he was the OJ. Bur I met the others through Andy. He had a way of sort of making things happen around him. I don't go to those parties much anymore; I'm not leading the same glamorous life. I don't miss it a lot, but when it started happening, I was young and naive, and it was really exciting. It was like incredible to go, you know, to meet Michael Jackson backstage with Andy. When he brought me to Yoko' s apartment the first time, it was incredible. You can't believe that you're there. The ultimate one was a dinner at Yoko's. I brought Madonna and the artist Martin Burgoyne. Andy was already there. Bob Dylan was there. David Bowie was there. And Iggy Pop. Just sort of in the kitchen. At first you are more in awe of things like that, but you adapt really quickly.»

-Keith Haring

It was only a matter of time.
Kanye West, rapper/fashion designer/husband to Kim Kardashian (seeAnnie Leibovitz and Kanye West Set Record Straight on Wedding Fiasco) apparently wants to add another title to his resume: curator.
With everyone from Miley Cyrus to James Franco styling themselves as a visual artist (see Miley Cyrus Takes Art Basel, Thanks to Jeffrey Deitch, and Why James Franco's Cindy Sherman Homage at Pace Is Not Just Bad But Offensive), and big shots like Leonardo DiCaprio and Jay Z (see From Hollywood to the Art World, the New Celebrity Collectors) continually scooping up pricey artworks with abandon, art collecting is the new trendy diversion for those with money and power.

«I JUST THINK ENTERTAINMENT IS THE BEST MESSAGE»


ARTHUR PAUL, PLAYBOY AND THE ART WORLD

Does he think illustration will ever attain the status of “fine art”? He is sure of it. “I often commissioned fine artists, and when I hired illustrators I always asked what they would do on their own,” he says. “At one time I commissioned famous artists, like [Andy] Warhol, [Robert] Rauschenberg, and [Salvador] Dali, to illustrate their interpretations of the Playmate. As for ‘fine’ or commercial art, if you think about it, the old masters were doing work whose purpose was to illustrate, and often they were commissioned to create work on very specific subjects. What makes anything fine art?”

Paul retired and left Playboy in 1982 only after he and Hefner had “turned the newsstand into a museum for the masses,” former editor Petersen points out. “The magazine was a gallery you could hold in your hand.”
A fine art, indeed.

GO WEST!

«Andy Warhol may be better known for his cans of Campbell's Soup and his Marilyn Monroe,
but his penchant for making Pop Art out of America's national myths also drew him to the Wild West. One year before his death in 1987, Warhol produced Cowboys and Indians, a portfolio of 10 screen prints that includes George Custer, Annie Oakley, Teddy Roosevelt, John Wayne and Geronimo, as well as native america artifacts such as Hopi Kachina dolls, a Plains Indian shield and a Tlingit Northwest Coast mask»
