No Parking 1976 - 1986
  • Artist Rooms
Following the gift of a camera in 1976, Warhol began to photographically document every aspect of his life from the people he met to graffiti on the streets. In 1986 he developed some of these images into what became known as his stitched photographs. Created by sewing several identical images together, these works are indebted to his early screenprints in their use of repetition and grid formation. He would often photograph and repeat seemingly ordinary objects and signs, such as this improvised ‘No Parking’ sign. By doing this Warhol is emphasising the broader significance of the commonplace things we encounter on a daily basis.
