Andy Warhol

Pittsburgh, Estados Unidos 1928

The artist, publicist and filmmaker (among others) Andy Warhol (1928-1987), left us one of the most important and influencer legacy of XX century: his role in beginning of Pop-Art. His work’s origin always was the publicity and so, applying the techniques to screen painting, got a very important place inside the artistic sphere of the second half of XX century.
His first exhibition was in California, in 1962; in the same year, managed to expose in New York, where the hostile news and critics qualified his works as boring and repetitive. Nonetheless, Andy Warhol always had a great intuition both for their own works and to sponsor young promises as was Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Today is one of the most influential artists and an icon in the contemporary art sphere; Warhol is already, one of the pillars of Art History.
