Multicoloured, Pop Art Monroe


By Caryn Morgan

Marilyn Monroe has grown to become one of the most popular culture icons in the last century.

Known mostly in her black and white photos, the Senior Art Club, in the third term, brought Monroe back to life in an extravaganza of shocking bright blue and multi-colours.

Aimed at capturing Monroe’s wild and passionate nature, the Art Club pursued techniques of the flamboyant Jackson Pollock, flinging on a variety of colours into the open spaces of Andy Warhol’s inspired Pop Art style of portrait.

In these two styles, the Senior Art Club successfully captured not only the essence of Monroe’s iconic image, but the passion of her personality too.
