Andy Warhol - Archive
Early LifeBorn in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1928, Andy Warhol – formerly Andy Warhola – always expressed a keen interest in art and pop culture. After high school, Warhol went on to study commercial art at the Carnegie Institute of Technology. In 1949, he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in pictorial design before moving to New York to begin his career as a commercial artist.
Although his first solo exhibition in 1952 was far from a resounding success, his career would later skyrocket, as he was featured in Time Magazine in 1962 for his painting Campbell’s Soup Cans. Although unpopular with art critics at the time, Warhol has since become one the most famous and well-loved artists of the 20th century.
