The Camouflage Self-Portrait is a work that was completed in the year 1986 by Andy Warhol, who was an American artist. This work was a self-portrait that he completed in the month of February before his death. In this self-portrait, Andy Warhol used a Polaroid photograph of himself as the base. He used an acrylic polymer paint and silk screen printing to create a camouflage effect across the surface of his self-portrait, which is surrounded with black.
