A similar opinion regarding 2 artists 50 years apart does not create an equivalency, nor does it anticipate a similar historical outcome.
No, I think that you are all about 25-50 years too early to have any comment on his contribution to the art world. And maybe even more.
Perhaps not, but when I ask my parents about the perception of Warhol in their day, it's funny to hear most of the comments on EB, b/c they are pretty similar to how people reacted and things they said then. No one can predict the future...
Why is it too early? People can't have an opinion on his contributions in the present? Warhol was doing something different and unknown at the time, so it's understandable why there was a negative opinion as some people criticize what is new/different.

MBW is playing out a hackneyed concept and that is why he draws so much criticism. So while the critique sounds similar it comes from two completely different contexts. With that said, you could be right and maybe in 30-40 years the uninspired and trite works of MBW will be considered masterpieces in irony.
If in 50 years, they are worth more than what I paid... it was a win and Ill take it.
If not.. I only have bought the pieces I enjoy, so I have a house full of paper that I like to look at & still a win.

Words to live by, but most will not listen to on this forum.
That's why you buy a little bit of everything.
Buying art, is speculating... if not, you would just admire it and not care to own the limited edition.

Since rainbows colors sell well maybe rainbow vomit would really up the value

Yeah, it's just not a good comparison. They have little to do with each other besides MBW cranking out cheap mass produced minimal-effort art to maximize profit.

The main point though is that what was interesting in 1962 was no longer interesting in 2008 and still isn't interesting in 2017. He's a copy of a copy of a copy, ten times removed and there's just nothing new or interesting in his entire body of work. He's cliche.

Eh, that's why it's art. To each their own.
I guess in 50 years we can look back and see what the value of his prints are and go from there.
Stay up though! Keep doing you.

Yep. Getting lazier and lazier. And thought I need to save up some coin for the Brainwash's Valentine print.

How is it a 3 color silkscreen. Red Variant, Pink Variant and the color of the drymounting paper?
