Andy Warhol is the first person to make American products high art in an art gallery.
Did you know that on June 3, 1968 Andy Warhol, a art critic and a curator (Mario Amaya) were shot in Andy’s studio by Valerie Solanas. This was caused because the factory turned down Solanas, because she wanted one of her scrip's back, but they said no. Therefore she got angry and shot them. Later on Solanas had minor injuries, but Andy was in severally injured.(surgeons had to open his chest and massaged his heart to help its movement again.)From then on Andy suffered physical effects for the rest of the live. But no one cared because two days later Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated!
He was criticized for a lot of things and one is for being a business artist.
I picked him because I like the way he was thinking when he thought of making art out of American products.
I like Andy Warhol because when he got shot and was in the hospital he fought for his live.

One of Andy’s screen prints was a Campbell’s Soup Can.
