Andy Warhol born Andrew Warhola Jr. August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987 was an American visual artist, film director, producer, and leading figure in the pop art movement. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, advertising, and celebrity culture that flourished by the 1960s, and span a variety of media, including painting, silkscreening, photography, film, and sculpture.


The bicycle was realized for a client who chose Andy Warhol as the name for the bicycle. It was an old dam, a city bike that needed a complete facelift, repaint and oracalography. The project does not reflect the concept of Vorgol's works arising from the order, since the condition was to choose an idea and a color scheme. In the end, the customer settled on light green and yellow, the color is ours - yellow, and shades of light green became part of oracleography. A light collage context is present, however, in the performance technique. The oracle is cut into squares of several sizes and thus a graphic collage is created in combination with Vorgol's signature. In fact, it is a hand-made mosaic. The rover is made on a planetary bushing.
