					                                  Andy Warhol
Born Andrew Warhola, August 6, 1928, in the industrial city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania,
Andy Warhol is best known for his exploration of Pop Art, mass producing images of
mass produced objects.
His most famous works depicted Campbell's soup cans. Enlarged, hand-painted or
silkscreened, framed, and hung in an art gallery, Warhol succeeded in turning these
mundane images into ironic "art".
Warhol experimented in media such as film, sculpture, paint, and silkscreen, but perhaps
his greatest work was his invention of himself as an international celebrity and pop
culture icon.
