From the 32 canvas Campbellï¿½s Soup Cans to the Marilyn Diptych, Andy Warholï¿½s silk-screen prints are the epitome of Pop Art: witty, gimmicky and unafraid of repetition. Obsessed with consumerism and the cult of celebrity, Warhol (1928ï¿½1987) exalted the ï¿½surface of thingsï¿½ï¿½and yet he was a man of deep complexity.
In Andy, Typex captures the remarkable life of the king of Pop Art, from his working-class upbringing in Pittsburgh to the dizzying heights of his celebrity. Spanning a period that began with the ï¿½talkiesï¿½ and ended with the advent of house music, it is also a memorable portrait of 20th-century pop culture and the stars who defined it.
Spanning Warholï¿½s early career as a commercial illustrator, his relationship with the Velvet Underground, and the development of his own instantly recognizable style, Andy is an exhilarating portrait of a transcendent artist and a master self-promoter. Intensively researched, this 568-page graphic biography has the approval of the Warhol Foundation.
