Born Andrew Warhola, August 6, 1928, in the industrial city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Andy Warhol is best known for his exploration of Pop Art, mass producing images of mass produced objects.As a young man he became one of New York's most sought of and successful commercial illustrators. In 1952, he had his first one man show. In the sixties, Warhol started painting daily objects of mass productions like Campbell soup cans and coke bottles.


Warhol experimented in media such as film, sculpture, paint, and silkscreen, but perhaps his greatest work was his invention of himself as an international celebrity and pop culture icon. In July of 1968. the pop artist was shot three times into the chest by a woman named Valerie Solanis.Warhol never recovered completely from his wounds and had to wear a bandage around his waist for the rest of his life. .
