Critical Review

Mobilgas (F. & S. II. 350) is one of a series of ten screen prints in Warhol’s Ads series, produced by the artist two years before his death. The inspiration for this series can be traced back to Warhol’s early career as a commercial illustrator in New York which sparked his interest in commercial and consumer culture. Printed on Lenox Museum Board, this print exemplifies how Warhol transformed corporate advertisements from the 1950s into desirable works of art. Elevating everyday advertisements to the status of art, Warhol breaks down the boundary between high and low culture, prompting one to consider what can be classified as art.

Warhol’s use of bold and vibrant colours in this print reflects a characteristic element of his artistic style. Warhol adopts everyday and commonplace imagery but reinvigorates these quotidian images with colour, turning ordinary objects and symbols into Pop Art icons.
