ANDY WARHOL

NO ROLE, NO IDENTITY

Andy Warhol (1928-1987) has always held a special place in the art world from the early prints of shoes to his iconic Campell ́s soup cans, Brillo Boxes and numerous celebrity portraits of the famous and horrific scenes all received a similar graphic treatment, redefining the world of the contemporary art in the 1960s. With the breadth of his artistic output, Warhol also foresaw the image-saturated culture that was emerging and which would ultimately consume our lives. His is a powerful legacy that never ceases to amaze by forcing us to deal with the issues of his time.
