We are proud to announce the second release of designs in the Incase for Andy Warhol Collection. The latest collection release highlights Warhol’s artistic range, featuring imagery from works in a variety of media including silkscreening (Elvis, Advertisements), film (Empire) and hand-drawing (Telephone, Do It Yourself Flowers). Iconic Warhol images turn Incase’s signature protective cases and bags for iPhone, iPad and MacBook into functional pieces of art, a tribute to the great American artist’s affinity for technology and its place in contemporary culture and the arts.
New for iPhone 4 is a series of Snap Cases adorned with a selection of Warhol artwork. A still image from Warhol’s 1964 silent film Empire pays homage to one of the world’s most recognizable skyscrapers and emblemizes the experimental film that spans more than eight hours in length. A hand-drawn image of an early 1900s telephone, originally drawn on linen, reminds us of the enduring telephone technology, which still takes primacy today even with modern advancements in personal communication.
A full range of products for MacBook, iPad 2 and iPhone 4 are treated with an Incase-exclusive collage of Warhol pieces from his advertisements series. Individual Warhol pieces contrast product advertisements against existential and religious themes and provide a striking and thought-provoking casing for Apple devices.
A stunning Elvis portrait, a prime example of Warhol’s early photographic silkscreen technique, is applied to cases for MacBook, iPad 2 and iPhone 4. Taken from a promotional poster for the film “Flaming Star,” Warhol’s use of silver and black crystallizes Elvis’ status as one of the most legendary stars of the silver screen and is a reflection of an ongoing celebrity and fame-driven theme present in some of Warhol’s most recognizable works.
Warhol’s Do It Yourself Flowers lampoons the paint-by-numbers kits that gained popularity with hobby painters in the sixties. Featured on our MacBook Sleeve and Snap Case for iPhone 4, the intentionally “unfinished” works demonstrate Warhol’s ability to emphasize specific areas of the composition for visual impact and liberate ownership of the original source through his unique style.
These latest releases in the Incase for Andy Warhol Collection are available today through our webstore with a limited range to follow at Apple retail and discerning boutiques worldwide.
