David Cronenberg on Andy Warhol

Cronenberg fans should head over to the amazing Ubu website, a wonderful treasure trove of experimental art, films and sound, where you will find a 30min audio documentary delivered by Cronenberg about Andy Warhol and his influence on culture and Cronenberg's own approach to art and film making. The documentary is divided, chapter style into 21 downloadable mp3 files. Essential listening.

David Cronenberg on Andy Warhol (scroll down the page)

A Cronenbergian fusion of metal and flesh. Andy Warhol also played with the image of the car crash in his Death and Disaster (1962-1963) paintings

Be sure to pay a visit to the Unflinching Eye blog where Alymer has posted an incredible article on the influence of Cronenberg's ideas on contemporary art and design. Fascinating stuff...
