Andy Warhol's About

[]

Andy Warhol is a name that revolutionized art in the United States of America during the 20th century. While the world was already familiar with art forms such as painting, Andy introduced a new concept named ˜Pop Art'. His illustrations for various brands garnered a lot of appreciation from the public. However, he was also criticized by many for commercializing art. Few of his famous works are the designs made for the world famous beverage ˜Coca Cola', and ˜Campbell Soup'. Without merely sticking to his paintings, Warhol ventured into cinema too. Of the 60 movies that he directed, most of them were considered offbeat and unconventional. Warhol continues to be a well-known man in art circles even today. He started a couple of institutions to keep the art form alive. Many of his creative works, in the past, have been displayed in various exhibitions across America. He has been a great source of inspiration for many American youth to explore their creativity, and turn towards art. The ˜Andy Warhol' museum located in Pittsburgh speaks volumes about America's love and admiration for this great artist.
