"An obsession with fame and brand names is the essence of Andy Warhol's influence, some say." This quote from the New York Times struck us as we were catching up on one of our favorite artists of all time, the godfather of Pop Art himself, Andy Warhol. Say what you will about his attitude, his methods, and his madness, there is no denying the talent of a man who transformed pop culture and the art world. We can now only imagine what his talents could have brought to an internet-savvy world. So today, on his birthday, we toast Andy Warhol. May his fifteen minutes of fame never end.
