Andy Warhol, the iconic king of Pop Art, is renowned for his chic celebrity portraits, playful Campbell’s soup cans and his engaging Polaroid snapshots. However, he also has been immortalized through his many bold, honest and amusing witticisms. In typical Warhol fashion, Andy has a quick and snappy answer for all of life’s quandaries, be it related to art or American culture. See the list below for some words of wisdom!
“An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have.”
“Isn’t life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?”
“I am a deeply superficial person.”
“Don’t pay attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.”</p
“Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”
“When I got my first television set, I stopped caring so much about having close relationships.”
“What’s great about this country is America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too.”
“Making money is art. And working is art. And good business is the best art.”
“I never wanted to be a painter; I wanted to be a tap dancer.”
