Andy Warhol (1928-1987), is widely credited as one of the most significant artists of the 20th century. After studying design at the Carnegie Institute of Technology, Warhol moved to New York in 1949 to pursue a career as a commercial artist. Though successful, Warhol wanted to be an independent painter and in the early 1960s began to create paintings based on advertising imagery. He built his studio which would later come to be known as "The Factory," a central location for celebrities and pop artists alike throughout Warhol's career. It was here that Warhol developed his signature pop style, which employed commercial silkscreening techniques to create identical, mass-produced images on canvas. With his multiple images of soup cans, soda bottles, dollar bills and celebrities, Warhol revealed the beauty within mass culture and indisputably redefined the art world and the art historical canon.
