An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have.

Andy Warhol

Knives 1981-82

Andrew Warhola (August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987), more commonly known as Andy Warhol, was an American painter, filmmaker and conceptual artist, who was a leading figure in the movement known as pop art. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became famous worldwide for his work as a painter, avant-garde filmmaker, record producer, author, and public figure known for his membership in wildly diverse social circles that included bohemian street people, distinguished intellectuals, Hollywood celebrities and wealthy aristocrats.

Warhol has been the subject of numerous retrospective exhibitions, books, and feature and documentary films.

Warhol coined the concept of “15 minutes of fame”, which refers to the fleeting condition of fame in the modern world, mainly attributed to mass media and transience in human beings.
