Description
Summary: "The socio-cultural impact of Andy Warhol &#x; painter, sculptor, printmaker, filmmaker, publisher, TV personality, socialite, graphic artist, collector, illustrator, rock impresario, photographer, model and author &#x; is incalculable. A pioneer in virtually every media in which he worked &#x; from his unmistakeable blotted-line advertising illustrations in the 1950s; to photography-based paintings of car wrecks and movie stars in the 1960s; to pre-Stonewall cult films that dared to explore sexually provocative subjects; to his re-invention of the celebrity magazine in the 1970s with Interview &#x; Andy Warhol also influenced such contemporary staples as reality TV, computer art and the rock-gig light show. As the inventor of the Polaroid selfie and master of the tweet-like short epithet (&#x;It&#x;s so nice to be invited to your own house by the person who&#x;s renting it &#x; you feel at home and you&#x;re still making money&#x;), Andy Warhol seems only to grow in cultural relevance in the twenty-first century"--Back cover
