Art is what you can get away with.


I love Andy Warhol and therefore i feel the obligation to write a little article about my favorite artist of the sixties.
" I never read , i just look at pictures " 
   Warhol began to make paintings and producing prints of iconic American Products ( Campbell soup cans , Coca Cola ) as well as celebrities ( Marylin Monroe , Elvis ) . He founded " The factory " , a studio , and gathered around himself artists, writers , musicians , underground
 superstar ( note to self : write an article about the factory later on ) .  Andy , who later became " the pope of pop " painted what he loved the most ( money per example ) . Though his work seemed banal it explicitly exposed the consumer society and the American way of life
" In the future everybody will be famous for 15 minutes " 
He became Popular and Controversial. 
He later included himself in the cinema industry by making experimental, underground films. They were often considered pornographic ( ref : beauty # 2 with my beloved Edie or Blow job  ) 
"  Andy : I think everybody should like everybody
Gene Swenson : Is That what Pop Art is all about ? 
Andy : Yes , it's liking things "
