Paul Stephenson Recreates Famous Artworks Of Andy Warhol, Years After The Great Artist’s Death

Andy Warhol can be considered one of the greatest artists, directors and producers of his lifetime. He once stated that someone should be able to do all the paintings for him. At the time, in 1963, not many people took great notice of these words, but now, an artist by the name of Paul Stephenson has taken notice.

Paul Stephenson, an artist has now been able to recreate the exact same portraits made by Andy Warhol, by tracking down the acetates and prints used by the legend to make his original pieces of canvas art print, thereby sparking a debate on whether these works of art where even done by Warhol or by someone else. Stephenson’s journey down this road began when he found online the original negatives used by Andy Warhol to create his pictures, being sold online by a screenprinter in New York. He took up these iconic negatives of Mao and Jackie Kennedy and initially didn’t know what to do with them. At the time, he wasn’t an avid fan of Warhol himself, but he purchased them due to their originality. Later in 2016, he decided to create his After Warhol works of art which will soon be on display at the Buy Art Fair in Manchester.

Although it is well known that Andy Warhol had many assistants who helped him with his work, it is not a well-known fact that Warhol made all the paintings himself and did not let anyone else work on them. It was also widely acclaimed that Warhol had a secret process by which he worked. However, the works of art made by Paul Stephenson resemble that of Andy Warhol so closely that one could not be able to distinguish them.

These pieces of canvas art print are very close in representation to the originals made by Warhol, and Stephenson is more interested in the debates that have arisen from his art than the art itself. Similar to his work on Andy Warhol’s paintings, Paul Stephenson has also bought works of art that date back 200 years, and has tried to paint them himself, trying to recreate originals.

You Will Rise Collaborates With Open Ground Studios For Art Against Bullying Program

The You Will Rise Project, an organizational initiative aimed at stopping bullying across the US through the use of multimedia art, started by two artists, Linda Regula and Paul Richmond, who themselves were subject to the trauma of bullying.

The project is currently collaborating with the California-based Open Ground Studios for the Art Against Bullying program, a series of art events and exhibitions across the Monterey Peninsula, aimed at raising awareness about bullying as well as providing victims an outlet for their experiences.

Richmond stated that it might be impossible for the You Will Rise Project to stop bullying altogether, but that, through initiatives such as this, they can teach kids that bullying does not need to define their personalities; it doesn’t need to have such an impact on their lives.

Richmond, aged 37, hails from Columbus, Ohio, and was responsible for bringing the YWR Project to the Monterey Peninsula. He co-founded the You Will Rise Project with Linda Regula, who acted as his art instructor during his youth. The idea came to the two of them after a discussion about bullying and teen suicide, and the Project followed soon after, founded in 2011.

He migrated to the peninsula sometime in 2016 with his husband, and it was then that he discovered Open Ground Studios in the Seaside, California area, which operates as both a Custom Art studio, as well as an art education institution, and is run by Dense Sanders.

Richmond has stated in the past that it is important to remain in contact with students that have gone through the You Will Rise Project workshops to check on their well-being, provide motivation, and simply ensure that whatever lessons they learned about themselves stick. He adds that it’s important for them to realize that they need to be nurtured, to be themselves and seek out their own happiness, in spite of their experiences.

The Art Against Bullying program will include Pieced Together, a community Custom Art installation that uses puzzle pieces submitted by community members, with the pieces representing a unique aspect of themselves. This installation was unveiled on the 8th of September alongside other works from Richmond.

Other events at Open Ground Studios include an Artist Open Studio, Art Against Bullying Workshops which feature 5 artist mentors, both local and visiting, as well as a Pop-Up Exhibition.
