A playful picture book biography of Andy Warhol and the origin of his pop art.
This is the story of Andy Warhol—and how his pop art took the world by storm. From drawing shoes for a shoe company to his Campbell's Soup cans and Marilyn Monroe prints, Andy made art out of the everyday. People claimed Andy's art wasn't real art, but that didn't stop him from making it, plus movies, a magazine, a TV show, and more!
Jeff Mack explores Warhol's fascination (and our own) with celebrity and fame, and opens readers' minds to the possibilities for art in the world around us. With an emphasis on the idea that anything can be art and anyone can be an artist, this is a book that's perfect for creative families and school art curriculums. It's sure to appeal to fans of Henri's Scissors and Andy Warhol's Colors.
