About the artist
My work should touch, challenge or simply visually entertain.
Jürgen Kuhl is a German artist most likely known for his Andy Warhol imitations. In doing so, he set himself the task of not only imitating Warhol, but also doing it better. In the 1980s, the demand for his works was so great that he produced them in up to six colour variations, each in editions of 300, and the original editions were sold out.
Many of Jürgen Kuhls works are based on silkscreen printing, which allows him to produce series and one-offs. After printing, the images are painted over by the artist, making them unique. In his career, Kuhl also became known for counterfeiting hundred-dollar notes, for which he also served a prison sentence. Controversially, he has to this day regarded this not as a crime, but as art.
