Andy: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol

Typex

From the thirty-two canvas Campbell’s Soup Cans to the Marilyn Diptych, Andy Warhol’s silk-screen prints are the epitome of Pop Art: witty, gimmicky and unafraid of repetition. Obsessed with consumerism and the cult of celebrity, Warhol exalted the  surface of things – and yet he was a man of deep complexity.   

In Andy, Typex captures the remarkable life of the king of Pop Art, from his working-class upbringing in Pittsburgh to the dizzying heights of his celebrity. Spanning a period that began with the  talkies  and ended with the advent of house music, it is also a memorable portrait of 20th century pop culture and the stars who defined it: from Elvis to Greta Garbo, Truman Capote to Lou Reed.     

Taking in Warhol’s early career as a commercial illustrator, his relationship with the Velvet Underground and the development of his own instantly recognisable style, Typex’s Andy is an exhilarating portrait of a transcendent artist and a master self-publicist. Intensively researched, this 568-page graphic novel – with silver edgestain on the pages-is the first to tell the complete life story of the iconic pop artist.
