This print is based on Andy Warhol's Marilyn Monroe prints.

From Supply and Demand, pg. 34:
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. I remember when I was making t-shirts, somebody said, “Isn’t it amazing that you’re taking one of the ugliest images ever and putting it on a shirt, and people are buying it up as fashion?” I had the idea of taking that a step further by taking Marilyn’s sex symbol face and changing that into Andre’s ugly face. Andre wasn’t a handsome man and he’s even a more hideous woman, but people loved the humor of the poster and snapped it up anyway. - Shepard Fairey
