Andy Warhol Moonwalk, 1987 depicts the world-famous image of Neil Armstrong standing next to a waving American Flag on the surface of the moon. Warhol endows the photo with fantastically glowing colors, Armstrong's space suit a saturated hot pink, echoed in the electric outline of the flag next to him. The crated surface of the moon is a shimmery doubling blue. The square composition is instantly eye-catching, the arrangement of the graphic figure of the astronaut, the flag, and a sharp horizon line giving way to a deep black all making the work as fun as it is hypnotizing.
