About the artist

Andy Warhol

One of the most influential and important artists in contemporary art and culture, Andy Warhol was a founder of and major figure in the Pop Art movement. Trained as an illustrator and graphic designer, in the early 1960s Warhol began creating paintings that took as their subject matter mass media and advertising images. His “Campbell Soup Cans,” “Marilyns,” and “Coke Bottles” shocked the art world for elevating consumer and celebrity culture into the realm of fine art. Warhol’s process was also controversial; he used silkscreen, a process associated with the commercial arts that was perceived as eliminating signs of artistic gesture and emotion. Warhol continued to experiment throughout his career - in prints, paintings, drawings, films and photographs - and his legacy is evident in his continued prominence in the art market and his prevailing influence on contemporary artists. 

While using commercial and easily accessible materials to create his groundbreaking oeuvre was doubtful to many at the time, Warhol has easily staked his claim as one of the best-selling, top performing artists on the secondary market consistently throughout the decades. Selling from a few hundred thousand to hundreds of millions of US dollars, Warhol constantly breaks his own record up on the block, demonstrating the reach and reverence the art world has for the him.
