In the 1980s, Andy Warhol created a series of prints on the theme of camouflage. Originally created by artists for the military, camouflage is designed to blend into its environment, and now the pattern has strong associations with the armed forces. The idea of a disguise which is also a recognisable emblem may have appealed to Warhol’s concern with brands and logos, and reproducing the non-representational pattern connected with his long-held interest in Abstract Expressionist painting. Warhol took the pattern and applied dazzling colours, unlikely to blend in with any natural environment.
