Soup cans! Buck bills! Celebrities! Paint by figures! Could it be art? Yes! Andy Warhol's art. a frontrunner associated with the US art motion referred to as Pop, short for "popular culture, " Warhol changed the way in which we think about art. Assisted by pictures taken of Warhol throughout their life, and samples of their early drawings and best-known works, Susan Goldman Rubin traces their increase from poverty to wide range, and from obscurity to fame. After going to art college in Pittsburgh, Warhol began a vocation as a commercial singer in New York, and quickly won recognition for their imaginative ads. When he turned to "real" painting, he utilized their history in commercial illustration and blurred the line between large and reasonable art. Some experts have said that Warhol's images of Campbell's soup cans and Coca Cola bottles represent American life. But Warhol stated, "i recently paint those objects during my paintings because those would be the things i am aware most readily useful. I do believe of myself as an American singer."
