NEW YORK, NY Art lovers and aficionados now have the opportunity to show off their love of the 1950s art movement with the release of Andy Warhol art inspired merchandize by Converse. Consisting of Warhol’s iconic prints, the collection illuminates the impact of the pop art icon on contemporary fashion trends. This  is the third time Converse is collaborating with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts to re/present Andy Warhol art in new ways.

Converse new Andy Warhol art style collection goes deeper into the artist’s outstanding artistic career as a leader of the pop movement. Previous collection highlighted his well-known prints, including banana print and Campbell Soup logos. The new Andy Warhol art trendy collection digs deeper with focus on Cow and Flowers series. They are featured on new designer sneakers that are available in high-top and low-top.

Beyond footwear, art lovers  also have other opportunities to show their love for the famous American pop artist.  In addition to the footwear, Converse has also released several printed T-shirts. The new Converse All Star Andy Warhol Flowers Tee celebrates this iconic pop artist. Each item in the collaboration features a glow-in-the-dark element, highlighting Warhol’s black light painting of the 1980s. Converse aptly describes the new Andy Warhol art collection. It “brighten up your wardrobe like nothing else.”

Art lovers can get the new Andy Warhol art fashion collection in stores and on Converse.com . The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Andy Warhol collection gives sneaker junkies and pop art aficionados something to  celebrate.

One of the most celebrated American artist, Andy Warhol was a leading figure of the  pop art movement. His art focused on the relationship  between artistic expression, celebrity culture, and advertisement.

Alongside artists like  Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, and Claes Oldenburg, Andy Warhol shaped a new concept for art appreciations. With their works, they blur the boundaries between “high”  art and “low” culture, by creating paintings and sculptures of mass culture objects and media stars.

Born in August 6, 1928, Andy Warhol was one of the first artists to utilize the iconic Chuck Taylor as a blank canvas for his own art. The result is the continued collaboration between artist and an art loving company.  Together, they have engendered an unparalleled imagination, individuality and artistic expression.

The recent Andy Warhol art inspired style collection is  a continuation of a collaboration dating back many years. The success recorded when the Andy Warhol art fashion collection was first launched is the impetus for the continued collaboration.  It is expected that more pop art products will follow.

In addition to Andy Warhol, Converse has also collaborated with other artists, including renowned American graffiti artist Futura.
