Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is hailed as 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 multi-faceted, prolific works by exploring notions of life, production and consumerism that remain central to the modern experience.
