Critical Review

Giant Panda (F. & S. II. 295) is part of the Endangered Species series, composed of 10 prints of different species, all of whom are threatened due to climate change, hunting and deforestation. The series was commissioned by New York gallerists and environmental activists, Ronald and Frayda Feldman in 1983 and reflects Warhol’s personal interest in animals and nature. While series like Cow and Flowers focus on more mundane natural subject matter, Warhol’s concern for the environment and ecological issues comes to the fore in this series.

The print was made using Warhol’s signature screen printing technique. Warhol’s experimentation with colour and dynamic gestural lines is apparent in Giant Panda (F. & S. II. 295) which transforms the Giant Panda into an icon of 20th century Pop Art. Warhol’s Pop Art aesthetic celebrates the splendour of this rare species and demands people pay attention to the threat humanity is posing towards this wonderful animal.
