5 Things to Know about

Famous Pop Art Andy Warhol

Enthusiastic about star, consumer tradition, and mechanical (re)production, Pop musician Andy Warhol created some of the most iconic pictures of twentieth century. As fabled for their quips in terms of their art—he variously mused that “art is really what you can get away with” and “everyone would be famous for a quarter-hour”—Warhol received widely from popular culture and daily subject-matter, creating works like their 32 Campbell's Soup Cans (1962), Brillo pad box sculptures, and portraits of Marilyn Monroe, making use of the method of silk-screen printmaking to achieve his characteristic hard edges and flat areas of color. Known for their cultivation of celebrity, Factory studio (a radical personal and imaginative melting pot), and avant-garde films like Chelsea women (1966), Warhol was also a mentor to musicians like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. His Pop sensibility has become standard practice, taken up by significant modern music artists Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami, and Jeff Koons, among countless other people.
