Playboy is one of the biggest names in show business – a brand that has been a part of the man’s life ever since 1953 when Hugh Hefner started his own magazine in Chicago. And since that day, the brand has been blossoming and attracting more and more readers globally and there have been many Playboy franchises around the world.
💜Playboy Over The Years: The Birth Of
Franchises And Legendary Covers:
Over the years, the magazine has published an array of covers. While most of them were more model and celebrity driven, there were also covers Who undoubtedly made an impact with their artistic nature.
One of them was the legendary Playboy cover made by Andy Warhol in 1986, the limited edition piece featuring the logo of the brand. The art was based on paint, applied through the silkscreen process which combined orange, pink, blue, yellow and black layers of colors applied one at a time.
So far, Warhol’s work was the first and only Playboy cover that was of artistic nature. Three decades later, the entire approach is getting a facelift. And now painter, Gilda Garza, is the artist behind the paint brushes.
