Andy Warhol

(b. ; d.)


I think that Warhol's work as an artist is one of the most important landmarks in modern art for several reasons. First the idea of repetition (first hinted at when Marcel Duchamp was struck by the absurdity of the "pop" versions of the Mona Lisa) that we are used to in this time, at the time when Warhol was working the idea of "media blitz" didn't even have a name. Much of his genius was to recognize that much of the imagery that we are surrounded with has no MESSAGE other than itself. See: [Marshall McLuhan page]
