Warhol created his piece Wayne Gretzky 306, a print of hockey’s “The Great One,” in 1984 to help draw attention to the Canadian art market. Though Andy Warhol was not a big hockey fan, he said of Gretzky “He’s more than a hockey player, he’s an entertainer” (Warhol in an interview with Matthew Flamm for CBC Radio News, January 1983). Wayne Gretzky was Canada’s biggest celebrity in the early eighties. He is still considered by many as the greatest player of the game.
