Andy Warhol .
Born in Pennsylvania in 1928 then died in February of 1987. Then at the age of 9-years-old, he had St. Vitus' dance, a nervous system disease that causes involuntary movements of the extremities. Had become hypochondriac which was a fear of Hospitals & Doctors. He had also shown early artistic talent and studied commercial art, then not long after that he moved to New York City, and begun a successful career in Magazine illustration and Advertising. His life consumed mostly around drawing and pop art. Pop art was one of his favorites and it seemed to make him feel good asides from his Mother of course . Since she was basically his best friend. 2) Celebrities that he had photographed were; Marilyn Monroe, Candy Darling, Viva, Holly Woodlawn, and Ingrid Superstar. 3) My favorite pieces of work that he did were the Campbell's Tomato soup Can, and Pop Art of Marilyn Monroe.
