Andrew Warhola was an American artist, director and producer who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture, and advertising that flourished by the 1960s, and span a variety of media, including painting, silkscreening, photography, film, and sculpture. Warhol is here represented without fear of showing the other side of the coin, made of plastic and painted red-alive but sold as if made of gold.
Works: Campbell´s Soup Cans, Marilyn Diptych, Chelsea Girls, Exploding Plastic Inevitable.
Periods: Pop art, Modern art.
