Overview

 

 

 

 

Andy Warhol, original name Andrew Warhola, was an American artist and filmmaker, an initiator and leading exponent of the Pop art movement of the 1960s. His mass-produced art apotheosized the supposed banality of the commercial culture of the United States. An adroit self-publicist, he projected a concept of the artist as an impersonal, even vacuous, figure who is nevertheless a successful celebrity, businessman, and social climber.
