Questions about the current Andy Warhol exhibit
I've received a few questions about the Andy Warhol exhibit currently on view at the art gallery here in Victoria. Being an artist I guess people are more inclined to approach me on the subject. I am not a fan of Warhol. However his work is an honest reflection of the 'non-culture culture' of America. Andy grew up with Campbell soup, hot dogs, hamburgers and Hollywood movies. All these objects and subjects dominate his output. Pop(ular) art belongs justly100% in the USA. It was mimicked in Europe, but at that time artists were not raised with those non-culture culture ingredients from which Warhol got his inspiration and nourishment.
