"In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes."


Andy Warhol (1928-1987) American painter, graphic artist, manager of a rock band and filmmaker. Warhol was one of the most important and influential artist of the past quarter century, and his name is synonymous with Pop-Art.

Andy Warhol was born in 1928 in Pittsburgh to immigrant parents of Czechoslovakian stock. He studied pictorial design at the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator in New York in the 1950s, he began adapting the commercial process of silkscreening to the world of fine art, and created iconic masterpieces such as his Marilyn Monroe images. In 1963 he began making films. His art was thereafter shown widely in numerous exhibitions throughout the world. 

Warhol died in 1987. His original and graphic works are found in major museums worldwide, and today are more widely sought-after than ever before.
