Global Warning - Global Warming - is the rare pink Andy Warhol edition, separate from the regular red edition. Limited Edition hand signed, dated and numbered silkscreen print created exclusively for the opening of Shepard Fairey's "Supply and Demand" Exhibition at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. This incredibly popular screenprint sold out very soon after the sale was announced by the museum. Fairey's "Global Warming", featuring a sunbathing woman covering herself with the aptly titled "Sun" newspaper, directly attacks the right-wing who deny the science of climate change, and even features his own Windmill Power poster as an alternative. During the exhibition, this iconic image was also featured on a New York City billboard. Fairey also created this silkscreen in red - but the present edition is known as the "Warhol" edition.
