Always one to play with the perception of icons, Shepard has used Marilyn Monroe’s image in two different cases. The first print, Andre Warhol, was released in 1995, and Marilyn Warhol came out in 2000. As stated in Obey: Supply & Demand, “Andy Warhol was a big inspiration, because he made a mockery of the fine art world, taking press stills and household items and turning them into high art. I felt like what I was doing was pop art in a similar vein, but I was taking it even further outside the institutions and straight to the street.”
