Getting to know Andy Warhol

Twenty five years ago today, Andy Warhol died from complications from gallbladder surgery. This seems like a less than dramatic end for a man who lived life as a work of art himself; and survived an attempted murder by Valerie Solanas in 1968. Much like Salvador Dali, Warhol's success can be credited to his remarkable talent of marketing himself and acting like the character that has become the stereotype of an artist. Whether pop art is of interest to you or not, or even if art is of interest to you or not, Warhol is one of the names that will more than likely come up in conversation at some point during your life time. So in honor of his life and in recognition of his death, here are a couple of videos about Andy Warhol.
