Sunday B Morning

Very little is known about who Sunday B Morning are beyond the now infamous branding name. They originally started out in the 70s as two friends working in close partnership with Andy Warhol on what was planned as satirical second release of Warhol’s iconic Factory editions. These were to feature his most recognisable and popular screen prints such as the Campbell Soups, Flower series and Marilyn. The Idea behind the reproduction of these works was for Warhol to play with the concept of fast-growing mass production something he had commented on before in his work, most notably his soup cans. The tagline stamp “Fill in your own signature” that can be found on the back of all Sunday B Morning prints came from Warhol’s desire to explore the validity of mass production within his own work. The production of the second release was planned to be identical to that of their predecessors. Warhol handed over the original paint colour codes and negatives for production allowing for the creation of works identical to that of his earlier works. Very little is known about the early stages of this partnership but Warhol went on the back out of the project and changed his mind. Unfortunately production was already underway and as he had handed over the colour codes and silkscreen negatives no legal recourse could be taken to stop Sunday B Morning who went on to print authentic versions of his most iconic works. To this day Sunday B Morning prints from the original 1970s release are heavily sought after by Warhol collectors. Although Warhol never legally fought Sunday B Mornings productions when he came across them he would sign them ‘This is not by me. Andy Warhol’ to make his displeasure. This however only made the prints more collectable. To this day Sunday B Morning are still creating prints using Warhol’s original colour codes and negatives and original printing techniques. It is this collection of skillset and knowledge handed over by Warhol that gives Sunday B Mornings prints the edge and makes them one of the most infamous teams
