The paper "Andy Warhol Life Facts" analyzes the life and art of Andy Warhol. Warhol studied elementary at Holmes Elementary School and later on took free art classes at Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh. He attended high school at Schenley High School after which in 1945, he studied pictorial design at the Carnegie Institute of Technology. In 1949, he graduated with a degree in Bachelor of Fine Arts. He then moved to New York and started a career as a commercial artist. It was also during this time that he dropped the “a” in Warhola and became Andy Warhol. After a year in New York, Warhol was hired as commercial artist for various famous brands such as Columbia Records, Glamour magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, NBC, Tiffany & Co. and Vogue. His style as a commercial artist includes the use of his original blotted line technique and rubber stamps. He became one of the most popular commercial artists in the 1950s, winning several awards. It was in 1961 that Warhol introduced the concept of “pop art”. These were paintings that were focused on mass-produced commercial goods. One of his most popular works is the painting of the Campbell soup cans which he exhibited in 1962. Some of his other famous pop paintings are the Coca-cola bottles, vacuum cleaners and hamburgers. Warhol expressed his reason for painting these products, “I wanted to paint nothing. I was looking for something that was the essence of nothing, and that was it”. Warhol also painted portraits of famous celebrities with vibrant and dazzling colors.
