Andy Warhol created his Truck portfolio if 1985. The portfolio consists of four variations of a Truck printed in vibrant colors. True to his pop art style, Warhol printed the truck on a solid colored background, with bold outlines to create the details on the vehicle. Truck was published in conjunction with the Bundesverband des Deutschen Guterfernverkehrs to celebrate the 20th World Congress of International Road Transportation Union. The translucent image of Truck is brought to life by Andy Warhol’s use of bright, contrasting colors and linework that gives the sense a three-dimensional look.
