Honoring Cecil the Lion Through Andy Warhol’s Psychedelic Endangered Animal Species Series

Known to be an animal-lover, Andy Warhol was approached by environmental activists in the 80′s to bring attention to the beauty and horrifying numbers of animals that were near extinction around the globe. Composed in a set of rainbow silkscreens, Warhol’s print followed his traditional composition of colorful, high-contrast pieces, which reveal the artist’s whimsical nature. Featuring animals, such as the Siberian tiger, the bald eagle, and the San Francisco Silverspot, Warhol’s portraits remind us that animal extinction is caused by humanity’s irresponsibility. Highlighting the beauty and artistic organic quality of animals, the series calls attention to preservation and admiration of nature.

ALBUM OF THE DAY:

The Dark Side Of The Moon  by Pink Floyd

A masterpiece in music, Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon is a stylistic monument, which has become a cultural icon recognized for its signature psychedelic, nostalgic rhythm and legendary album cover. Oozing with introspective, existentialist lyrics, the prolific album title resonates with its subliminal content.
