“ON THE MAP” ANDY WARHOL’S PORTRAIT
Pablo CaviedesCreated 2015. Acrylic on Wood. The "On the Map" project represents a personal view of immigration and is a graphic perspective of what I consider to be a common denominator of our American identity. The portrait of Andy Warhol, the iconic figure in the arts and culture of this country, easily recognized but whose immigrant origins are lesser known, represents the second generation of immigrants who left an enormous cultural legacy with his new artistic paradigm that revolutionized the arts in the seventies.
