Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol, arguably the most popular of pop artists, was born this day in 1928. After graduating art school, he moved to NYC in the late ’40s and began work as a commercial artist. His experiences as an illustrator likely led to his most famous style, photographic silkscreen printing. There are so many facets of Warhol’s career–too many to describe here: Chelsea Girls, The Factory, Edie Sedgwick, the films, 15 minutes of fame, The Velvet Underground, being shot, his wigs, Interview magazine…. His legacy is large in popular culture to this day. Remember Burger King’s Super Bowl ad a few years back of Andy eating a Whopper? Learn more at The Warhol museum (
