Andy Warhol $ (4), 1982, further addresses the Pop artist’s fascination with mass consumption in this unique, one of a kind piece, specifically with the iconography of the dollar symbol itself. This phenomenal screen print exemplifies Warhol's playfulness with line and color, which he utilizes to add depth to his work. The four dollar signs, each consisting of different color combinations, arranged in a rectangular formation. They appear to pop out at the viewer - this effect is created in part by the medium as one can see the distinct layers of silkscreen ink, but also by the contrasting bright colors of the dollar signs against the black background. Warhol here makes a fearless statement, for he blatantly acknowledges that money is art, and art is money.
