Monday Muses: Warhol Week

Starting this week, we will be posting a weekly bio about a particular artist from the past that has randomly caught our eye. This week has been declared Warhol Week! We picked Andy Warhol because much of his work is still ever present in our society today. His work is considered revolutionary in the pop-art movement, so if you think you haven’t seen any of his work around, think again! Andy, we salute you.

Andy Warhol  (August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987) was an American artist 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 advertisement that flourished by the 1960s. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became a renowned and sometimes controversial artist. The Andy Warhol Museum in his native city, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, holds an extensive permanent collection of art and archives. It is the largest museum in the United States of America dedicated to a single artist.
