  • Andy Warhol created most of his artwork
    during the 1960s.
  • This was an exciting time in popular culture. New
    kinds of music, art, books, and movies were being
    created. This inspired Warhol to look at
    art in a new way. Very Groovy!!!

1960's

  • Andy Warhol began his career as a
    commercial artist.
  • A commercial artist is a person who creates
    pictures for commercial uses like advertising or
    illustrations in magazines or books.
  • Andys drawings appeared in many fashion
    magazines.

5
  • Many commercial artists liked Warhols work.
  • However some artists did not like Andys artwork.
    This upset Andy. He wanted people to think of him
    as a real artist and not just a magazine
    illustrator.
  • So,Andy began creating pictures of ordinary
    objects and displaying the artwork in museums.

Factory-Made Art
  • Andy Warhol specialized in printing. That way he
    could make multiple copies of his pictures.
  • He even named his studio The Factory, to
    encourage people to compare his art to
    manufacturing.

7
  • Andys art showed what was popular in American
    culture during the 1960s.
  • It was different than anything that had been
    created before.

8
Pop Art
  • This style of art is called Pop Art because the
    subjects for his artwork came from popular
    culture.

9
  • A friend suggested Andy paint something that was
    so common people didnt see it as art. Warhol
    loved to eat soup. So he decided to paint cans of
    Campbells Soup.Warhol bought all the different
    kinds. Then he spent hours copying the cans on a
    white background.

10
Repetition
  • Warhol liked to make many pictures of the same
    thing.
  • In 1962 a famous actress named Marilyn Monroe
    died. That same year he made a series of
    pictures of her.
