Andrew Warhola (Pittsburgh; August 6, 1928 - New York; February 22, 1987), commonly known as Andy Warhol, was an American artist and actor who played a crucial role in the birth and development of pop art. After a successful career as a professional illustrator, Warhol gained worldwide fame for his work in painting, avant-garde film and literature, a notoriety that was backed by a skillful relationship with the media and by his role as a guru of modernity. Warhol acted as a link between artists and intellectuals, but also between aristocrats, homosexuals, Hollywood celebrities, drug addicts, models, bohemians and colorful urban characters.

Warhol used different media to create his works, such as hand drawing, painting, engraving, photography, screen printing, sculpture, film, and music. The Andy Warhol Museum in his hometown, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, contains an extensive permanent collection of art. It turns out to be the largest museum in the United States dedicated to a single artist.
