Andy: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol Paperback / softback
Part of the Art Masters series
From the 32 canvas Campbell's Soup Cans to the Marilyn Diptych, Andy Warhol's silk-screen prints are the epitome of Pop Art: witty, gimmicky and unafraid of repetition.
Obsessed with consumerism and the cult of celebrity, Warhol (1928-1987) exalted the "surface of things"-and 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 "talkies" 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 Warhol's 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.
