DPM: Warhol Tigerskins

This posthumous collaboration between Maharishi and Andy Warhol was released in 2022 within the broader Maha Warhol collection.

Celebrating the Lunar Year of the Water Tiger, Warhol’s off-set screen printing techniques and plays with scale are employed to develop Warholian colour ways of Tigerstripe, the impossible to find camouflage pattern famed by U.S. Special Forces in 1960s Vietnam. Warhol had previously only produced camouflage works based on the U.S. Woodland pattern, which featured in his Camouflage Plates 1986 series, and in 2004 within the Kubrick (9 block) headstand figures produced in collaboration with Medicom, Maharishi and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
