Andy Warhol is America’s most recognisable artist. He’s crafted persona and constant artistic experimentations, and his relentless pursuit to reflect contemporary culture, set new boundaries for artists as social critique. Warhol understood the power of the image and he used non-traditional techniques to explore new contemporary images that have influenced so many of today’s artists.
Warhol’s honest explorations about capitalism in America is vast and mimics its never-ending appetite. His power to reflect contemporary culture with art, acting as a mirror, is as arresting today as it was in the 1960s.
