I heard today was Andy Warhol's birthday.
Several years ago, I don't even remember what year it was, I went to Pittsburgh, PA to see Eddie Izzard with my friend Eben, who had recently moved there. One day while he was at work I went to the Andy Warhol museum. It was great timing because I was reading his book The Philosophy of Andy Warhol, and enjoying it.
So in honor of his birthday, here are some pictures I took that day, and some quotes by the man himself.
Once you ‘got’ Pop, you could never see a sign again the same way again. And once you thought Pop, you could never see America the same way again.
I think having land and not ruining it is the most beautiful art that anybody could ever want to own.
People need to be made more aware of the need to work at learning how to live because life is so quick and sometimes it goes away too quickly.
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
I suppose I have a really loose interpretation of “work,” because I think that just being alive is so much work at something you don’t always want to do. The machinery is always going. Even when you sleep.
