One could say that Warhol's prophecy regarding 15 minutes of fame has largely become true. With the expansion of the internet to a platform where any user can broadcast its very own channel, his promise has been more than fulfilled. The repeating of fame which initially creates fame and subsequently flattens and destroys it, has increased as well. 'Portrait 7: Warhol' presents the artist as a work of art, the performer, the public personality. Warhol himself is transformed into a product, a brand, a media phenomena. He puts on the face of a celebrity. Warhol himself replaced with images of violence. Everything in high speed, shorter than a quote, reduced to a cry, a signal, a pulse. Dadaist and surrealist. Pop art itself as the subject. Popular art derailed. Popular art or the art of popularity?
