Campbell’s cans, Monroe and Presley, POP ART, silkscreens, The Factory, and Velvet Underground – these are a few things which would undeniably bring Andy Warhol and his greatness to anyone’s thoughts.

An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have. — Andy Warhol
Andrew Warhola was born in the late 1920s. World-widely known as Andy Warhol, this American of intertwined artistic talents became the leading figure in the visual art movement called pop art. He was a filmmaker, an illustrator, a painter, and was also an author. As early as the 1960s till the late 1980s, he continuously enamored the world through his visual masterpieces which, until now, are of great aesthetic value.
Setting his fine arts prowess aside, Andy Warhol was a wonderful photographer. He was deeply in love with cameras — making it easier for him to make love with the camera’s lenses as well. From playful photo-booth shots to instant Polaroid shots, and to masterful portraits and self-portraits — he was always camera-ready! Here are a few selections of Andy’s analogue photographs (featuring his majestic self) and see how he truly lead an analogue lifestyle:
In one way or another, artists and photographers today are greatly influenced by Andy Warhol’s superstar style. We all want to have the pop art version of our self-portraits.

With Andy Warhol’s silken white brows and hair, creativity is truly in the air!
