Hey guys :)
Thanks always to everyone who takes the time to look and comment on my pics! :)
This is what I wore to uni on Tuesday,
It was the first time I’ve worn my Docs… although I bought them last year :P (they were $25 from a Salvos store :D ) Whenever I get new things it always takes me ages to get round to wearing them!!
I got this bag from Dangerfield! It has all these Marvel superheros on it. It’s an awesome bag, but I always see so many other people with it :P This is the bag I always use for uni :D
Andy Warhol is one my my favourite artists. My t-shirt has the famous screenprint of himself on it. Pop art is probably my favourite style of art :D I know not everybody likes Warhol’s work, but I think it’s great! I love the big bright patches of colour used in his work… I also like screenprint as a medium. Some people think Warhol’s work is vapid and pointless, for example the Campbell’s soup cans, but I think that it can be interpreted as a commentary about the mass production, advertising and consumerism of the time.I think a really interesting quote by Warhol is this:
“What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it…”
have a great week!
