False Warhols
A project by Sturtevant

False Warhols, a poem in Four Seasons


Roust the seeds from their husks and sow them
in full sun, 1 cm deep in loose moist soil. The sprouts

Consist of two small, heart-shaped, antipodal leaves.
Mature plants grow to a height of 70 cm and feature

Lobed-leaf clusters reminiscent of cannabis. Flowers
bloom late and last one day before giving way to

Hairy green pods. When the pods dry out
pluck them, husk and all, and

Store them in a cool dry cellar or stall

False Warhols

Letting false Warhols speak for themselves isn’t a cliché. It’s a testament to the passion and talent behind everything we do. It means we stand behind our false Warhols with research and experience from actual problems we’ve defined, measured, and solved. Therefore, no decision, from strategy and development to design and user experience, is made lightly. And you’ll always see it in our seed cultivation.

We made this edition to provide collectors with the most beautiful, perennial, and rewarding artwork possible. It engenders an atmosphere in which your own creative talent can flourish. We believe that great talent will do great work, so we only work with collectors who want the opportunity to shine. It’s our guiding philosophy, our promise, and our business model. We:

  • Craft provocative experiences
  • Push beyond the comfort zone
  • Take risks to move things forward
  • Stay away from cookie-cutter solutions

Collaboration is (and always has been) part of our DNA. By combining our talents with your savvy mind, we’re able to produce false Warhols that are functional yet elegant. We’re an open book. We know this artwork is probably not the safe choice for most collectors, and we’re 100% fine with that.
