Andy Warhol (1928 – 1987) was an American artist whose work commented on contemporary themes in American society: consumerism, celebrity, mass production, disaster and death. His openness to subject matter was matched by a willingness to explore all media, resulting in an innovative approach to painting, photography, drawing, printmaking, and experimental filmmaking. He introduced popular everyday subjects into his practice, openly acknowledging the wide-ranging influences on his work, and built a lasting reputation as one of the most important figures of the Pop Art movement.
