Andy Warhol

Birth Year : 1928
Death Year : 1987
Country : United States

Andy Warhol began his artistic endeavors as a child. He was often bedridden from the movement disorder Sydenham’s chorea. This period of his life was crucial to his development. Outcast from other children, he became close to his mother, listened to the radio and collected pictures of movie stars (who would become his life-long obsession). It was also during this period that he found a talent and a love of drawing. When he graduated high school he entered the Carnegie Institute of Technology’s Fine Art College.
