A is for Auction. Upon confirmation of the $1.4m winning bid for the framed print, ‘Girl With Balloon,’ by Banksy, began to shred whilst still on the wall. It nearly self-destructed, but the buyer eventually confirmed the sale and the work was renamed ‘Love is in the Bin.’
B is for Brillo Box. In the mid-1960s, Andy Warhol, furthered his investigation of American consumerism with his wood and screenprint Brillo Box sculptures. Initially, they didn’t sell, and this simple, knock-off consumer product infuriated the critics. Today each is valued around $1m.
C is for Crown. Jean-Michel Basquiat was one of the most important artists that emerged from the splashy early 1980s downtown New York City art scene. The crown is the most identifiable of his recurring motifs, and is placed above images or figures that he respected and admired.
D is for Dots. Japanese Contemporary artist, Yayoi Kusama, is obsessed with polka dots. Since the late 1970s, she has voluntarily lived in a psychiatric institution. Her meditative practice of repeated patterns serves as a therapeutic tool to process trauma that she experienced.
E is for Eyebrow. Much of the work by Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo, is figurative, and often self portraits with a mix of abstract and surrealist elements. She was an important figure in the feminist movement, and was married to artist Diego Rivera, with whom she had a famously tumultuous relationship.
F is for Feminist. T-shirt’s have long been a modern marketing vehicle, which is perfectly aligned with the text based artwork by contemporary artist, Jenny Holzer. Her ‘truisms’ are trademarked by concise statements, that are produced in various forms, from 2D to large scale installation.
G is for Gas Station. California based artist, Ed Ruscha, has always been interested in elevating the ordinary and overlooked, as seen in the Standard Gas Station illustrated. His first book, self-published in 1963, was titled ‘Twentysix Gasoline Stations.’ It displayed only photographs of gas stations that he passed on Route 66.
H is for Horse. Italian contemporary artist, Maurizio Cattelan’s artwork installation of a stallion with its head through the wall, and body suspended is one of many works of this nature. His artwork is humorous and contrasts the perspective of the subject and the viewer.
I is for International Klein Blue. In 1957, artist Yves Klein worked with a chemist to chemically compose this specific hue of International Klein Blue (IKB). It is so saturated that it almost causes one's sense of depth and perspective to waver when staring into it.
J is for John & Yoko. This iconic Rolling Stone cover of John Lennon and Yoko Ono was taken by Annie Leibovitz in their New York apartment. She encouraged them to disrobe for the photograph- Yoko Ono declined, but he accepted. Joining her at the foot of their bed in fetal position, the nature of their relationship was perfectly captured.
K is for Kitsch. ’Kitsch’ is used to describe artwork or objects that are considered ‘lowbrow’ or excessively garish. Much of Jeff Koons artwork is considered kitsch, especially works from his ‘Banality Series’ such as this life sized, gilded porcelain sculpture depicting Michael Jackson and his pet chimpanzee, Bubbles.
L is for Love. This image by American artist, Robert Indiana, was originally red, green and blue. It was initially used as the print image for the Museum of Modern Art’s Christmas postcard in 1964.
M is for Magna. Magna is the brand of acrylic resin paint that dries with either a very glossy or matte finish, most famously utilized by Pop Artist, Roy Lichtenstein, who used magna with oil paints.
N is for Nurse. Much of Richard Prince’s artwork is created by ‘borrowing’ images, slightly altering them and calling them his own, also known as ‘appropriation.’ The Nurse Painting images are sourced from cheap romance novels and the titles of the artworks are borrowed from the originating book title such as ‘Debutant Nurse’ or ‘Bachelor Nurse.’
O is for Oversize. Urs Fischer’s cast bronze outdoor sculpture, Untitled (Lamp/Bear), from 2005-2006 depicts a well-loved yellow teddy bear with a light bulb and lamp post protruding from behind. The work of this Swiss-born, New York-based artist is usually humorous, conceptual, large scale in nature, and described as a ‘collision of things.’
P is for Pots. Ai Weiwei is constantly under surveillance by the Chinese authorities due to his work that condemns the devastation caused by the Chinese cultural revolution. One of his series covers Neolithic Age vases with industrial paint, or tags them with commercial logos. His most notorious performance piece, claimed to be valued at $1m, documents him dropping a ceremonial Han Dynasty Urn.
Q is for Queer. Keith Haring is widely known as one of the most important and well known contemporary artists from the 1980s New York art scene. Although trained at SVA, his artwork was heavily influenced by the street culture of the time. His unique visual language and graffiti style work reflects his political and societal opinions, often expressing his homosexuality. He sadly passed away at the young age of 31 from AIDS complications.
R is for Rivalry. Introduced in 1906 by Gertrude Stein, Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse developed a sometimes healthy but perpetually competitive relationship. They met regularly to scrutinize each others work. This both fueled their already competitive relationship but also very much inspired each artists work.
S is for Spider. Louise Bourgeois’s work explores family, domestic roles, the female body, sexuality, the subconscious, and her artistic practice served as therapy to help her work through childhood trauma. The spider, which she referred to as ‘Maman’ is an ode to her own mother, and emerged in the late 1990s as a central image throughout her work.
T is for Text. Christopher Wool, who dropped out of art school, returned to the art world in the 1980’s to assist artist Joel Shapiro. The idea behind his best known work, the black and white text paintings, was inspired by seeing graffiti lettering on the side of a brand new white truck.
U is for Urinal. Marcel Duchamp’s sculpture, ‘Fountain,’ was made by laying a porcelain urinal in its ‘ready made,’ ordinary, manufactured form, on its back. It is widely considered an iconic artwork of the twentieth-century. This simple, yet provocative work, single handedly fueled the argument behind the question, ‘what is art?’
V is for Vitrine. Damien Hirst was commissioned by British mogul and art collector, Charles Saatchi, to make any artwork for £50k. He made this vitrine, holding a fourteen foot long tiger shark preserved in formaldehyde, and titled it ‘The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living.’ It was later sold to art collector Steven Cohen for approximately $12m.
W is for Walking Man. Alberto Giacometti worked primarily in figurative sculpture, drawing and painting. His figures are identified by their withered, elongated forms. In 2010, ‘Walking Man I,’ broke the record for the highest price paid for a work of art at $104.3m.
X is for Xerox. Wade Guyton uses scanners and digital inkjet technology to put his digital paintings on canvas. For years, his work has sold for over $1m. Disgusted by the high auction estimate given by Christie’s for his work,‘Untitled (Fire, Red/Black U)’, Guyton printed multiple copies of the work, spread them out all over his studio, and posted it on instagram. The posts went viral, yet the work still sold for $3.5m.
Y is for YBA. In the 1980-90s a group of visual artists began exhibiting together in London, commonly referred to as the Young British Artists. They were notorious for their wild lifestyles, entrepreneurial nature and use of ‘shock tactics’ in their artwork. Many were collected and exhibited by Charles Saatchi, and included artists such as Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst, and Sarah Lucas.
Z is for Zoomorphic…Belgian artist, Wim Delvoye began tattooing live and dead pigs in the 1990s. He compares them to humans, noting the color, texture and nudity of their skin. The tattoos are based on his drawings, which are mostly references to pop culture and Western icons, such as the Louis Vuitton monogram.
