About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol is one of the most famous artists of all time and is the undisputed king of the Pop Art movement. Long before his successful career of selling Warhol artworks, the artist had humble beginnings. Born as Andrew Warhola in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1928, Warhol was the fourth child of two Eastern European working class immigrant parents. The artist’s initial foray into drawing can be attributed to his mother; at just eight years old, Warhol would spend several months bedridden, receiving drawing lessons from his mother. Warhol attended the Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University) and received a degree in PIctorial Design. Upon graduating in 1949, he moved to New York to begin his career in advertising and magazine illustration.

Warhol spent the beginning of his career drawing shoes, either for Glamour Magazine or as a shoe designer for Israel Miller. Using tracing paper and ink, Warhol would create multiple variations of a single theme using his “blotted-line” technique which combined drawing and print-making, foreshadowing the silkscreen process that would dominate his career. He achieved great success as a commercial illustrator and was selling Warhol illustrations to well-known magazines, such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, and winning numerous awards. Even then, though, it was clear that Warhol was meant for more.

The 1960s were a turning point for Warhol’s launch into Pop stardom. He began to devote more of his time to painting and he singled out everyday, commercial objects as the perfect subject. His likenesses of everyday products like Campbell’s soup cans and Coca Cola bottles were pictures that every American consumer could recognize. Galleries around the country began to sell Warhol and embrace him as a leading Pop artist. He soon started incorporating celebrities and other public figures into his work, drawing on the star power already associated with their images for an artwork’s impact. Warhol’s primary medium became silkscreen and he was mass-producing endless variations of his chosen consumer motifs, mirroring the mass-produced objects he was depicting. Selling Warhol was more than just selling a print or a painting; selling Warhol was selling a slice of American culture.

Opening his own studio, The Factory, in 1964 solidified the artist as an avant-garde cultural phenomenon. His public persona was enigmatic, but he mingled with all sorts of influential figures, which helped sell Warhol as a celebrity in his own right. The Factory would become a site of near-tragedy in 1968, when Valerie Solanas would attempt to murder the artist. Warhol survived the gunshot wounds, and would continue to further his career. After the incident, in addition to selling Warhol paintings, screenprints, and drawings, he branched out into other art forms and began publishing books, as well as creating sculpture and film.

Warhol died in 1987 at only 58 years old. No other artist has captured the American imagination with the same success as Andy Warhol. Even as his fame grew, he never lost sight of his beginnings as a commercial artist and his ongoing devotion to documenting American culture through its household names.
