“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself” Andy WARHOL
Bio of Andy WARHOL

Before assuming his place in history, Andy Warhol worked as a commercial illustrator in New York for over a decade. Although he began painting in the late 1950s, he emerged into the spotlight in 1962 when he exhibited wooden replicas of Brillo soap pad boxes, along with paintings of Coca-Cola bottles, and his infamous Campbell’s soup cans. Warhol’s mass-producing silkscreen technique was key in reducing his depictions into insipid and dehumanized cultural icons that reflected the alleged emptiness of American material culture, along with Warhol’s own emotional withdrawal towards his creations. Eventually, Warhol’s work propelled him to the forefront of the emerging Pop art movement in America.

Collaboration info

This Collaboration between The Skateroom and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts draws on Warhol’s iconic art across different periods of his career. Through his work, Andy Warhol redefined the way we see the world by turning the ordinary into something extraordinary. He also firmly believed that change was only possible if a person sought it out, rather than a natural occurrence of its own – a value shared at The Skateroom.
