Today, the Ethan Cohen Gallery presents, “Warhol to Wahlstrom from 60s Celebrity to Today’s Social Media.”
It’s a common conversation, when in relation to our internet culture. Two Artist - Andy Warhol and Johan Wahlstrom have each showcased their artistic reactions in direction to current politics in the United States. We can date back to 1972’s familiar depiction of Nixon by Warhol, that showcases an example of presidential uproar in the seventies. Wahlstrom, paints his “social life” which, similar to Warhol, also includes social figures influencing society in today’s era. Wahlstrom is also know for his famous photo depicting Trump on his phone while sitting in the Oval Office, which one can assume is him on a twitter rant.
