Andy Warhol 1928-1987

Andy Warhol (b. 1928, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA-1987, New York) surrounded himself with glamorous personalities (many of those transvestites), which he promoted as 'Superstars'. His films and work out of the Factory NYC were influential on the 1970s artistic scene for re-appropriating the aesthetics and values of pop culture, mainly reflected by Hollywood stardom.
