About the artist

"I want my work to touch, challenge or just visually entertain."

Jürgen Kuhl is a German artist most likely known for his Andy Warhol impersonations. In doing so, he set himself the task of not only imitating Warhol, but doing it better. In the 1980s, the demand for his works was so great that he produced them in up to six color variations, each in editions of 300, and the original editions sold out. Many of his works are based on silkscreen printing, which allows him to produce series and unique pieces. After printing, the images are painted over by the artist, making them unique. In his career, Kuhl also became known for counterfeiting hundred dollar bills for which he also served a jail term. Controversially, he has to this day regarded this not as a crime, but as art.
