The Story
Andy Warhol - Sunset Purple 2

The Sunset series by Andy Warhol is considered to be one of his most expressive projects. The perfect example of color serialization, the screen print was produced in 632 unique color variations on smooth wove paper in 1972.

Commissioned by the esteemed architecture firm, Johnson & Burgee, the prints were to be installed in the rooms of the renovated Hotel Marquette in Minneapolis, Minnesota. After the prints were removed from the hotel, they were signed, numbered and stamped.

In partnership with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, The Skateroom presents its interpretation of the artist’s iconic Sunsets.

Produced in 2 colors, Purple and Orange, these limited editions of 500 each launched August 9th at MoMA NYC. They are also available worldwide on our webshop with 5% of the turnover or 25% of the profit – whichever amount is greater – funding social projects benefiting at-risk you in the form of grants.
