Fascinated by consumer culture, the media, and fame, <strong>Andy</strong> <strong>Warhol</strong> himself became one of the most famous and important<br />

artists of the twentieth century.<br />

The son of Czechoslovakian immigrants, Andrew <strong>Warhol</strong>a grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, studying art at the<br />

Carnegie Institute of Technology from 1945 to 1949. Soon after graduating he moved to New York City, where he<br />

abbreviated his name to <strong>Andy</strong> <strong>Warhol</strong> and began working as a commercial designer and window display artist, winning<br />

several awards for his distinctive advertising designs. At the same time, he was developing his own style of painting, which<br />

was inspired by mass culture, a subject that riveted the artist and dominated his entire oeuvre. By the early 1960s, <strong>Warhol</strong>'s<br />

paintings of dollar bills, soup cans, and movie stars established his status as the fo<strong>under</strong> of pop art. Repetition was a key to<br />

<strong>Warhol</strong>'s work, as evidenced by his many recurrent series which included flowers, Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy<br />

Onassis, and Chairman Mao, among others. <strong>Warhol</strong> deliberately infused his work with a mechanical and impersonal<br />

character that intensified when he adopted silkscreen printing techniques in order to increase his production. To accelerate<br />

this process even further, he employed a large group of assistants in his studio, dubbed "The Factory." This practice<br />

brilliantly reflected the commercial, industrial economy of the mechanical reproduction age.<br />

<strong>Warhol</strong> was also a popular and influential figure in the <strong>under</strong>ground film movement; his documentary approach often<br />

focused on banal and repetitive subject matter. In the 1970s he shifted his attention back to painting portraits of famous<br />

people, mainly working on commission. <strong>Warhol</strong>'s bland persona, platinum wig, and public statements such as, "In the<br />

future everybody will be world-famous for 15 minutes," epitomized the <strong>under</strong>ground culture of the 1960s and 1970s. In<br />

1975 he published The Philosophy of <strong>Andy</strong> <strong>Warhol</strong>. During the 1980s <strong>Warhol</strong> often collaborated with younger artists,<br />

including Jean-Michel Basquiat and Francesco Clemente. His flamboyant career was suddenly cut short in 1987 when he<br />

died of complications after gall bladder surgery.
