“Buffalo Nickel” was created as part of Cowboys and Indians Series which is a collection of prints published in 1986 and it is believed to be Andy Warhol’s last series of paintings before his death in 1987. “Buffalo Nickel” was designed by James Earle Fraser and distributed between 1913 and 1938. If American currency crystallizes its ideologies of heroism, the Indian Head Nickel was an attempt to re-inscribe Native Americans heroes into America’s history, recognizing their political and national importance. Andy Warhol, however, approaches the “Buffalo Nickle” as a type of media stunt, inserting the historically important and rare coin into the context of American popular culture.
“Buffalo Nickel” is a 36 x 36 – inch unique trial – proof hand-signed screen-print.
Andy Warhol is seen as one of the most prolific American artists of all time, whose undeniable influence proved him to be a leading figure within the Pop Art and Culture Movement. Warhol was a multitalented individual; he was an artist, filmmaker, producer, designer, and photographer. Warhol was born on August 06, 1926 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. From an early age, Warhol was interested in the arts as he was often sick at home than at school. Rather isolated due to childhood illnesses, a young Warhol entertained himself by drawing and with other artistic hobbies. Eventually, Warhol graduated high school with aspirations to become an illustrator in the world of advertising. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from the Carnegie Mellon University of Technology and moved to New York to pursue his creative dream.
