Andy Warhol was the creator and leading proponent of the Pop Art movement, responsible for some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. His works are the result of his obsession with fame, consumer culture, and the power of mechanical reproduction. He is best known for his silk-screen prints of everyday, mass-produced objects such as Campbell’s soup cans and Brillo boxes, as well as his repetitive representations of famous figures such as Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor. Warhol delighted in the subversion of artistic traditions, having one stated: “art is what you can get away with.” Warhol worked using silk screen printing, employing bold colours to create hard, flat edges to render his archetypal images. Warhol’s beliefs and works were controversial for the ways in which they blurred the lines between high art and mainstream culture. On the topic of Pop, Andy Warhol once famously said: “once you ‘got’ pop, you could never see a sign the same way again. And once you thought pop, you could never see America the same way again.” Later in life he focused more on experimental filmmaking for which he latterly gained recognition.
