Andy Warhol (1928 – 1987) was an American artist and a leading figure in pop art, celebrating the worlds that collide between art and American consumerism as well as branding culture, that flourished in the mid 1950s onwards. Many of his works touch more particularly advertising such as “Campbell’s Soup” (1962) and “Heinz Boxes” (1964) or celebrity culture with “Turquoise Marilyn” (1967) or “Liz #5 (1964) or darker voyeurism with “Electric Chair (1964) and “Car Crash” (1963). Worhol was also noted for directing experimental films such as “Empire”, “Blowjob” (both 1964) and more, as well producing the Velvet Underground’s first album (1966), and founding “Interview” Magazine (1969).
