Overview

Can a can of soup be art? With a single image, Andy Warhol changed the very definition of art and the cultural landscape around it. But who was the man behind the can?

Formerly an editor for Art Review, Robert Shore is the creative director of Elephant magazine.

In this short art biography from the Lives of the Artists series, Shore explores the life and art of the gifted and controversial figure.

Coming from a working class background in Pittsburgh, Warhol often reinvented himself over the course of his lifetime. From his tumultuous relationships with the counterculture of the 1960s to his pioneering work that redefined the relationship between creativity and commercialism, this brief biography covers all the bases.

"As for his work, it was as deep as he was – that is, not at all. It was pure surface."
