Person Of Influence: Andy Warhol

Self-Portrait, 1986 by Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol was born in Pennsylvania, in 1928. Warhol was a well known American painter, printmaker, filmmaker and leading figure of the pop art movement. The pop art movement emerged in England, during the early 1950s and in the late 1950s in the United States. Coining the term “15 minutes of fame” in 1968, Warhol believed in the future everyone will be famous for a short time. Warhol’s 1963 canvas “Eight Elvises” sold for US$100 million, the highest price paid for a Warhol painting.

Create This Look In Your Home:

Whether you buy these items or ones at a cheaper cost, the key to recreating the look of Andy Warhol’s paintings in your home is to bring in color, prints, and texture. The 1960s USA, Candy Darling Wing Back chair is from Satyricon. It’s bold strip pattern and rich color is very Warhol. The 1960s, Emerald Glass Chandeliers are from Amsterdam Modern, so Warhol. This vintage 1970s print from Emmerson Troop Inc. is a replica of Warhol’s painting. You can add as little or as much to your space as you want. Don't follow rules, just do.
