Andy Warhol created Space Fruit Peaches 202 for his Space Fruit portfolio that he completed in 1979 with the help of printer Rupert Jasen Smith. Warhol was inspired by the study of still life compositions that included fruits, vegetables, glasses of water and insects. Warhol reimagines the traditional depiction of still life by using numerous bright, contrasting, and complementing colors to create a three-dimensional look. The pop artist took much interest in achieving a perfect shadow composition, which is evident in this particular work as he creates the fruits’ shadows with black, purple and turquoise shading. While Warhol’s quick detailed lines give the fruit its shape, it is the shading that gives the fruit its texture, which ultimately allows one to recognize the fruit as peaches. Andy Warhol created this Space Fruit: Peaches by placing the fruit on a white background, then lighting the background at specific angles to cast arbitrary shadows that he photographed.
