Author Info
Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol was born into a blue-collar community during the Great Depression, the third son of Ruthenian immigrants. Warhol's childhood experience of contracting St. Vitus's Dance influenced his career; while bedridden he drew pictures, read movie star fanzines, and lived on Campbell's soup. He studied art from the age of nine and graduated from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1949. He moved to New York City and developed a career as a commercial illustrator for various magazines, including Glamour, Vogue, and Harper's Bazaar. His first solo exhibition was at Hugo Gallery, New York, which contained his illustrations of the stories of novelist Truman Capote. Although Warhol continued to exhibit his paintings throughout the 1950s, it was not until 1962, when he produced silk-screens of dollar bills, Campbell's soup cans, and other symbols of American pop culture, that he received critical acclaim. During the 1960s, he transformed his studio into The Factory, a chic hangout for social misfits. He also pursued a variety of art endeavors such as filmmaking, publishing his celebrity magazine Interview, and financing the first album of the rock band the Velvet Underground. His popularity increased as his work was shown in Paris, Stockholm, and throughout the United States. In 1968, Valerie Solanis, a woman who claimed she felt manipulated by Warhol, shot him in the chest--miraculously, he survived. THE PHILOSOPHY OF ANDY WARHOL, a book that he wrote in response to his shooting, was published in 1975. During the 1980s, his status as a media icon increased, and he befriended the decade's most popular stars. He dictated his name-dropping diary to his friend Pat Hackett, which resulted in the publication of ANDY WARHOL DIARIES. His one novel, A: A NOVEL, illustrates the daily routines of Warhol and his friend Ondine. At the age of 58, Warhol died unexpectedly from complications of routine gall bladder surgery.
From the Publisher
Editors Note Anecdotal, funny, frank, POPism is Warhol’s personal view of the Pop phenomenon in New York in the 1960s and a look back at the relationships that made up the scene at the Factory, including his rela­tionship with Edie Sedgewick, focus of the upcoming film Factory Girl. In the detached, back-fence gossip style he was famous for, Warhol tells all—the ultimate inside story of a decade of cultural revolution.
