Current exhibition at Firstsite, Colchester. It’s really exciting to see the work of renowned artist Andy Warhol right on my doorstep. I particularly enjoyed his ‘Screen Tests’, created in the 19060’s, in which actors, artists and musicians were filmed for 3 minutes, creating a kind of live portrait.
Hattie Stewart was influenced by the work of Warhol for her contribution to the exhibition and explores fame and vanity in the 21st century, in a similar way to which Warhol has done in the past.
HATTIE STEWART- Colchester born artist + self-proclaimed ‘professional doodler’.
ANDY WARHOL – Iconic american artist, know for his influence on the Pop-Art movement.
