Andy Warhol was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1928. In 1945 he entered the Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University). Upon graduation, Warhol moved to New York where he found steady work as a commercial artist working for several magazines including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and The New Yorker. The 1960s was an extremely prolific decade for Andy. Warhol began adapting the commercial process of silkscreening to the world of fine art and created iconic masterpieces such as Marilyn Monroe, Campbell’s Soup Cans, Ads and Myths, among his most famous images. Firmly established as a major 20th-century artist and international celebrity, Andy Warhol exhibited his work extensively in museums and galleries around the world. He has created many paintings that remain icons of 20th-century art.
