Andy Warhol 1928-1987



Andy Warhol, born in 1928 in Pittsburgh, was an iconic American artist and leading figure in the Pop Art movement. Known for his vibrant and repetitive imagery of everyday objects, celebrities, and consumer culture, Warhol challenged traditional art boundaries. He gained fame in the 1960s with works like the Campbell's Soup Cans and Marilyn Monroe portraits, revolutionising art by merging high and low culture. His studio, The Factory, became a hub for creative innovation. Warhol's legacy extends beyond art; his commentary on mass production and fame continues to influence contemporary culture. He passed away in 1987, leaving an indelible mark on the art world.
