Catalogue Note

A graphic designer turned painter, Dipo Andy is influenced by the Pop Art movement, and above all, its godfather, Andy Warhol. The series of portraits amassed here of prominent figures from popular culture - from politics to the arts - seek to reinterpret the iconography of Pop Art. While his visual vehicle pays homage to Andy Warhol, his emphasis is not on the celebrity culture but on the merits and characteristics that made these leaders popular in their respective roles. In the present Lot, Dipo ! paints world leaders and their respective qualities: The Charismatic P resident Charles de Gaulle; The Great Mandarin, Zhou En Lai; The Down to Earth Southeast Asian Master Painter, Affandi; The Great Orator, President Soekarno; The Savior of China, Deng Xiao Ping; The Brightest Chinese President, Hu Jin Tao; The Great Leader, Chairman Mao; President Suharto, The Strong; The Peacemaker, Nelson Mandela; The Great President, Abraham Lincoln; The Sino-Opener, Richard Nixon; The Greatest Wordsmith, William Shakespeare; The Inspirational Franklin D. Roosevelt; The Lionheart, Winston Churchill; and  The Wise President Harry Truman.
