Description

From the 32 canvas Campbell’s Soup Cans to the Marilyn Diptych, Andy Warhol’s silk screen prints are the epitome of Pop Art: witty, gimmicky and unafraid of repetition.

Obsessed with consumerism and the cult of celebrity, Warhol (1928–1987) exalted the “surface of things”, and yet he was a man of deep complexity. In Andy, Typex captures the remarkable life of the king of Pop Art, from his working-class upbringing in Pittsburgh to the dizzying heights of his celebrity.

Spanning a period that began with the “talkies” and ended with the advent of house music, it is also a memorable portrait of 20th century pop culture and the stars who defined it.

Spanning Warhol’s early career as a commercial illustrator, his relationship with the Velvet Underground, and the development of his own instantly recognizable style, Andy is an exhilarating portrait of a transcendent artist and a master self-promoter.

Intensively researched, this 568 page graphic biography has the approval of the Warhol Foundation.
