Andy Warhol  was an American  Artist who was born August  1928 and died February 1987. He was the first Modern Art Superstar! Warhol’s style was known as POP ART. Pop Art comes from the word popular – he used everyday items such as soup cans and soap powder as inspiration for his work as well as celebrities, including Elvis Presly and Marilyn Monroe. Warhol’s work is typically BOLD, BRIGHTLY COLORED with SIMPLE SHAPES. Andy began his career as an illustrator- making drawings for adverts and magazines. He later became a very succesful, but often controversial artist working from his studio known as the ‘factory’ where he made paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, scultpures and short films. 

Andy Warhols work is BOLD, STRONG and CONFIDENT unlike the artist himself who was actually known to be shy and awkward. Why did Andy Warhol make so many Soup cans?  

Listen to MOMA kids audio about Andy’s soup cans and learn some cool things.

 

He really caused quite a stir in the Art world – many people didn’t think what he was doing was Art. What do you think? 

When we are safely able to visit museums again, perhaps you can take a trip to Pittsburg and see the Andy Warhol Museum – a whole Museum devoted to Andy’s Art!

 

 

Watch the video and do your own Still Life drawing of a Can – what’s in your can?

Show me on PADLET I’d love to see your Pop Art Creations.
