MSCHF Puts for an Auction 1,000 Copies of Andy Warhol’s Fairies for 250 Dollars

The art group MSCHF puts for an auction 1,000 copies of Andy Warhol’s drawing Fairies. The original work which the artist painted in 1954 costs 20,000 dollars and each copy is sold for 250 dollars. But even the authors of the copies do not know which one is the original. The artists used a robotic arm that reproduced Warhol’s strokes on 999 sheets of paper and then aged the material with light, moisture, and heat. Each of the 1,000 copies of the work is now called a Possible real copy of Fairies by Andy Warhol.

The MSCHF auction is an art event aimed to ridicule the obsession of art lovers in its classical sense with the originality of the work.

Andy Warhol Foundation

It is not yet clear how the Andy Warhol Foundation will react to this, which now manages the artist’s creative heritage. MSCHF already has a history of lawsuits. They were sued by Nike in the past over the release of Satan shoes. But then the parties settled the conflict out of court.

Andy Warhol is a cult figure in the world of art. The American artist is considered one of the founders of pop art. Throughout his career, he has worked as an artist, illustrator, designer, sculptor, writer, producer, filmmaker, publisher, and collector.
