25 years and still the worlds greatest pop artist

Andy Warhol died on February 22, 1987. In other words, 25 years ago, the famous man who had famously written his own script finally had it taken away. The creator of the Campell Soup Can and the famous silk screens is still some of the most sold pop art – so popular that today anyone can make their own Warhol-look-a-like with a Mac. We love Andy Warhol and his immortality.

  1. It seems like, outside of the audiences of specific markets like video games or animated movies or comic books, there just aren’t very many artists today who are known by the general public as a household name. Maybe Warhol was one of the last of the really famous artists. Sure there’s a few household names that are still around, like thomas kinkade, but outside of niche markets it seems like most of the big names haven’t even been heard of by the average person.

    • You are so right! But I cannot really decide whether it is a good thing or a bad thing. Today there is so many artist and so many different genres – just like in the music industry, movies etc. So is it a good thing that we have a larger variety of artist or is it sad that it means that the world has seen its last really big superstars whether it be artist, musicians or actors?

      Thank you for commenting and I defintely follow your fabulous sketches! 🙂
