About the Artist:
Andy Warhol (; born Andrew Warhola Jr.; August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987) was the leading pioneer in pop art, working as an American artist, producer, and film maker. He was inspired by the advertising and celebrity culture of the 1960s, and explored its relation with artistic expression through medium such as painting, silkscreening, photography, film, and sculpture. Some of his best-known works include the silkscreen paintings Campbell's Soup Cans (1962) and Marilyn Diptych (1962), the experimental films Empire (1964) and Chelsea Girls (1966), and the multimedia events known as the Exploding Plastic Inevitable (1966–67).
