This is a fine art print of ‘Double Elvis 1963’ by renowned Pop artist Andy Warhol. The original is a silkscreen ink on synthetic polymer paint on canvas and is a prime example of Warhol’s early photographic silkscreen technique. The portrait forms part of a series of 22 images of Elvis, nine of which are now in major museum collections around the world. 

The print depicts Elvis Presley as a cowboy, complete with holster and pistol pointed at the viewer. The piece was inspired by Elvis Presley’s successful 1960 film ‘Flaming Star’, in which the singer-actor played a half white, half Native American, struggling between two cultures. One of Warhol’s Double Elvis silkscreen originals fetched a record $37m at auction in 2012.

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol is probably the most famous member of the Pop Art movement. Virtually any image that was in the public domain was a prime target for the Warhol treatment. Sculptures of Brillo soap pad boxes, Coca-Cola bottles and replications of popular icons such as Elvis Presley, Elizabeth Taylor and most famously Marilyn Monroe are just some of his huge body of work.
