Discover a magical world of art
Andy Warhol was born in 1928 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was the youngest child of poor Czechoslovak immigrants. As a child, he suffered from various diseases, so that he wasn’t able to play outside with other children and had to stay in bed. This was the time when he had developed interest in all sorts of art and fell in love with it.
After he studied pictorial design at the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, he moved to New York, the city of his eternal fascination and inspiration. Warhol earned his living as an advertising photographer for fashion magazines and shop decorators before he became a famous artist.
Andy Warhol was first well-known for his screen prints, for which he used everyday objects like the famous red and white soup cans of tomato Campbell Soup, Coca Cola bottle and hamburgers. One of his famous screen prints are the portraits of Marilyn Monroe, which you can find in our modern and inspiring rooms in art’otel berlin kudamm.
Warhol is known as the first multimedia artist, because he used a various number of techniques like printing, photographing and drafting on silk. He also practised filmmaking, performance art, video installations and writing. His studio, the Factory, a large silver-painted warehouse, was the “go to” place for artists, musicians and actors and became one of the premier cultural places.
