Receiving a spam email from a Chinese "copy village" unexpectedly sparked the inspiration for the "Nightmare Series." This email, contained an extensive catalog of tiny thumbnails of paintings by artists they could replicate, including three iconic Andy Warhol paintings.
Warhol's entire artistic legacy had been simplified into three diminutive 64x64 pixel thumbnails, portraying Jackie Kennedy, Liz Taylor, and an Electric Chair. This served as the profound inspiration for these melancholic celebrity portraits.
The tears in these artworks symbolize a poignant representation of the heartbreak and sorrow we all encounter in our lives.
