In the 1980s Warhol came to be idolised by several emerging artists, in particular Francesco Clemente, Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Warhol viewed them as protégés and they began collaborating on artworks – each painting on the same canvases. This poster has been designed on this principle. It is advertising a benefit party and exhibition organised and curated by Haring in 1985 for UNICEF’s African Emergency Relief Fund. Featuring the artists Roy Lichtenstein, Yoko Ono, Haring, Basquiat and Warhol, each artist has contributed to the poster. For example, Warhol added the umbrellas and Lichtenstein the rain cloud. Together these create a bold, fun and cosmopolitan design.
