"I like boring things." - Andy Warhol



I've always been fascinated by pop art photographs, sculptures, paintings, the colors, etc. The Pop Life exhibition begins with Andy Warhol's work and this submission is inspired by Warhol's "Knives" that was produced in the early 1980's. So, I decided to photograph and enhance straws - simple boring everyday objects. Why straws? Well, another inspiration...the spot paintings by Damien Hirst.



Simulated process technique on white, mint or black. Hope you guys like it!
