Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol was an extraordinarily prolific artist and a leading figure of the Pop Art movement. He was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1928 and received a BFA in pictorial design from Carnegie Institute of Technology in 1949. After a short but successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol began making paintings. He quickly developed a distinctive but nuanced style that incorporated all manner of mass-produced imagery, from Campbell’s soup can logos to photos of celebrities, using his famous silkscreen technique. The artist created a large body of work that also included drawings, prints, photographs, sculptures, and films before he passed away in 1987. Since then, the artist has had retrospective exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, NY, the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin, the Tate Modern, London, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, LA. The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, which opened in 1994, features a massive permanent collection and is the largest museum in the United States dedicated to a single artist.
