Andy Warhol is considered among the most influential artists of all time. Born in Pittsburgh, PA in 1928, Warhol attended Carnegie Mellon University before moving to New York City, where he would found his studio – the legendary “Factory” – and redefine the aesthetics of contemporary Pop-Art through his use of “assembly line” production techniques, his fascination with the “cult of celebrity” and his innovation across new mediums, including his infamous “screen tests,” which initiated the genre of “reality T.V.” Warhol died in 1987 from complications due to surgery. In 1994 the Andy Warhol Museum opened in Pittsburgh.
A prolific artist, Warhol’s works are among the most sought-after in the current art market and include many of the most expensive pieces ever sold, such as his painting “Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster),” which achieved 105 million at auction in 2013.
