Andy Warhol (1928-1987) is hailed the most important proponent of the Pop Art movement. A critical and creative observer of American society, he explored key themes of consumerism, materialism, media and celebrity. Drawing on contemporary advertisements, comic strips, consumer products, and Hollywood's most famous faces, Warhol proposed a radical re-evaluation of what constituted artistic subject matter. This book introduces Warhol's multifaceted, prolific oeuvre, which revolutionised distinctions between "high" and "low" art and integrated ideas of living, producing, and consuming that remain central questions of modern experience.
