2014 Blacked Out Flower Series

Echoing Warhol’s process, the Los Angeles based artist Matty Mo created an art factory and employed a team of artist assistants to produce this collection of work in 2014.

His process is conceptually the most sophisticated element of his contemporary artwork. With reference to Ad Reinhardt and Rauschenberg’s assault on de Kooning, The Most Famous Artist is best known for black overlays that elevate kitsch artwork found at flea markets into fine art, highlighting motifs of censorship, remix culture, and perception manifestation.

Everyday people censor their lives. We share fragments of the whole beautiful story because social feeds will not accept the other 99% of life that isn’t glamorous and perfect. Hidden beneath the surface is so much more, but in order to make our lives commercially acceptable we omit the banal, we hide the real, and we revel in the inauthentic and offensive beauty of the lens through which we present our lives to the mob.

You Can Do This Too is most obviously an ode to Warhol’s 1964 Flowers series, but the meaning and intentions of the work go deeper. As a satire of and subversive punch at the art institution’s celebration of factory artist like Warhol, Koons, Hirst, and even Banksy, The Most Famous Artist is exploring what means to be “famous” and who is actually the “artist” when art is produced with a light touch at scale - The McLoughlin Gallery, 2014
