Famous Artist Andy Warhol was an American artist, film director and producer who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as Pop Art.
In 1961 Warhol came up with the concept of using mass-produced commercial goods in his art. He would use commercial images and produce them over and over. One of the earliest and most famous was the Campbell Soup can. In one painting he had 200 cans repeated over and over!
Andy Warhol was a different kind of artist. While many artists focus entirely on their art and with no interest in personal fame, Warhol wanted to be rich and famous. His paintings have become iconic in American culture.
