Moonwalk, 1987

This is a screen print that Andy Warhol created in 1987. It was based on two NASA photographs that were taken by Neil Armstrong of Edwin Aldrin, Jr. walking on the moon for the first time in 1969. I really like this screen print because I like the story behind the photos that were used for it. Also I like the colors that were used, I think that are very compatible with each other. I really like pop art and wanted to see what other kinds Warhol had done since I always learned about the famous Marilyn Monroe ones and the Mickey Mouse ones.
