Transcript of Andy Warhol
The Prince of Pop Art. Andy Warhol was one of the first artists to understand the importance of the mass media.

Warhol made paintings using images such as Coca Cola bottles, dollar symbols, and popular cleaning products One of Warhol’s first exhibits was in nineteen sixty-two. He created thirty-two paintings of red and white soup cans. These paintings shook the art world. The soup cans looked like the soup produced by one of America’s most popular food companies, Campbell’s. Every painting looked the same except for the words written on the can that described the different kinds of soup. He made series with Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, and other stars. This new technique made Warhol a star. Who was Andy Warhol? Warhol explored many other subjects, he made a series of paintings on death and disasters.
