Andy Warhol (from August 6, 1928 to February 22, 1987), born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, is generally accepted as a leading figure in pop art and one of the most influential artists in the 20th century. In the 1960s, people pursed equality and immediate and tangible happiness, the whole American was bombarded with simple, repetitive, popular social phenomenon brought about by industrial mechanization, that gave Andy Warhol “natural” materials for creation. His works, as the epitome of American mass culture, reflect that prosperous era. Andy Warhol, who inherited the pop art from Britain, was a "spoiler" of the exquisite traditional art and values. His works are the manifesto that the definition of art would no longer be fettered by traditional rules. The phenomena of that period recorded by him and the artistic value carried by his artworks are far-reaching to the present day.
This exhibition can demonstrate the application of multiple media materials by Andy Warhol and put on display 72 works produced by him between 1962 and 1986, ranging from static silk-screen printing, photos to dynamic images. The exhibits include his representative works, such as "Marilyn" series, "Cow" series, "Campbell's Soup" series and "Flowers" series, and comprehensively show the artistic and visual feast under the pop plant of Andy Warhol in terms of time span and type of works.
"Art for All" is the theme of this exhibition and also the artistic spirit of Andy Warhol.
