Learn about Andy Warhol with iMinds insightful knowledge series.
Andy Warhol came to public attention as one of the leading lights of the Pop Art movement of the 1960’s. Since then his art and legacy have polarised art critics and the public alike. This thin, pale, asexual man in a silver wig has been described as both a genius and a charlatan. His art, and maybe more importantly his approach to art, have taken him out of the galleries and museums into the public arena. Love or loath his work most agree that he broke down the divide between high art and mass culture.
Crucial to Warhol is this paradox: As an artist who approached art from its commercial perspective he pointed out how art is debased by money.
