Mike Bidlo – Not Warhol (Billo Boxes, 1964), 2005

Mike Bidlo. Not Warhol (Billo Boxes, 1964), 2005



“I thought it would be interesting to appropriate a work by another appropriator, so in a way I just kept the proverbial snowball rolling.”
Warhol copied the design of the commercial cardboard cartons of Brillo and altered their size, but Bidlo works only from photographic illustrations of artworks found in books and catalogues. Consequently, Bidlo’s “Not Warhol” transformations are reproductions derived from a photographic reproduction of an original reproduction of an original product.
