The Famous Andy Warhol Pictures

The pictures of Andy Warhol have revolutionized the art world. Whether you love him or hate him (and most people tend to drift towards one of these extremes,) there is just no denying that Andy Warhol pictures have shaped much of what is important in our culture today. Without the pictures of Andy Warhol, pop art would have never picked up and done what it did. He was the first person to realize many important things about painting art. In Andy Warhol pictures, you can see the beginning of the understanding that the status and fame of the artist, and the significance of the work of art as a fetishized cult status was far more important than the work in and of itself. And in Andy Warhol pictures you see the first attempt to synthesize the high art and the low. Andy Warhol pictures, more than the works of any other artist before his time, try to come to an artistic appreciation of popular culture, seeing it as as worthy of admiration as anything that came before or after.

When I was in college, I had Andy Warhol posters all over my dorm room. My first exposure to Andy Warhol pictures was through the music of the Velvet Underground. On the cover of their first album, they had the famous Andy Warhol picture of a banana, which you probably have seen practically everywhere. The Velvet Underground were great fans of Andy Warhol pictures, and I, as a great fan of the Velvet Underground, soon discovered the art works of Andy Warhol because of them.

I am now definitely a little less of a fanatic about Andy Warhol pictures than I was when I was young, but can still not deny the originality of the man. It may be strange to call someone who spent his career copying the works of others original, but he really was a genius. Before looking at Andy Warhol pictures, most people never consider the possibility that works of advertising and such could be considered art, but after looking at him, your eye will be changed. As the saying goes, “it is an ill wind that blows no minds.” By this standard, it is easy to see that Andy Warhol has at least some value. I do not think that he could be called an ill wind at all. He certainly blew my mind when I first saw Andy Warhol pictures in college.
