On June 18 2002, the Mercedes-Benz boutique at Singapore Changi International Airport celebrated its first anniversary with the launch of the exclusive Andy Warhol collection.
Andy Warhol is considered as one of the most influential American artists of the 20th century. He is a legend in art history as the key figure in the Pop Art movement. His provocative and creative treatment of comics like Batman, Popeye, Superman and Dick Tracy; portraits of Troy Donahue, Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, Natalie Wood, Jacqueline Kennedy and films like ” Sleep”, “Tarzan and Jane “ transformed him into an award-winning artist and a household name.
Warhol was commissioned by Mercedes-Benz to do a collection of rare vintage cars and exclusive models to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the invention of the automobile. His creation of 35 cars, which he entitled simply ‘Cars’, was made between May 1986 and beginning of February 1987. He commenced his ‘ Car ‘ collection with the patented Benz-motor of 1886 and ended with the futuristic C111 (a prototype) construction.
