In honour of Andrew Warhola, better known as Andy Warhol, the American artist, filmmaker, and printmaker, who was a leader of the "pop art" movement and who helped evolve accessible enjoyable art for so many people, here is... Alfie Warhol-ized!
Yesterday Feb 22nd was the anniversary of Warhol's death. He left his fortune to a foundation to celebrate the arts, which is to this day one of the largest grant-giving visual arts foundations in the US.
Warhol celebrated celebrity and took silk screens of such mainstream objects as soup cans and Elvis prints to new glamorous ends, and he also coined the expression "15 minutes of fame", though he of course had way more than fifteen minutes - 23 years after his death, he is as famous and appreciated as ever. His art has sold for up to, yes, $100 million US. Holy crap, that is big bucks!
