Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol seemed to be one of the first artists to move into the modern era that we have today. Considering most art during his time was more modest in color schemes and restricted to common techniques (ex: the human body and nature), he seemed to rather dive into colors and common objects. Even when working with portraits, I feel like was was modernizing hair lines with a simple squiggled line while still getting out what he wanted to convey. My opinion of him is very high just because he showed that art can be made from a soup can. I also feel like a lot of advertising strategies now days can give credit to his works. His works were an effective tool in the movement of art being produced and distributed commercially.
