Andy Warhol Speed Skater (F & S II.303)Meaning & History
Speed Skater, produced for the official Olympic Games held in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia, in 1983, demonstrates the Warhol's ability to create enticing and arresting imagery for commemarative purposes.Speed Skater is a screenprint published in the portfolio Art and Sports in 1983, the official portfolio of the XIV Olympic Games in Sarajevo. The figure skater appears mid-skate, coloured in harsh red and black against a black background; it is a dynamic image with which one feels the real skill and speed undertaken by the athlete. By this stage in his career, Warhol had become very interested in athletes as the new celebrity: he had executed portraits of heavy-weight champion boxer Muhammad Ali in 1978. Speed Skater is important within this corpus as it was published for an official and seminal event – the Olympics, and encapsulates Warhol’s ability to create enticing and arresting imagery for commemarative purposes.
