Andy Warhol was the son of immigrants who became an American icon. A shy observer who became the hub of New York’s social scene. An artist who embraced consumerism, celebrity and counter culture – changing modern art in the process who transformed pop culture and became a ground-breaking artist. Enter into the vivid world of Andy Warhol and create your own original art along the way!
