An original graphic novel biography of Andy Warhol, the cultural icon and Pop-art legend. Celebrated during his lifetime as much for his personality as for his paintings, Warhol (1928-1987) is the man who invented Pop Art, the notion of 15 minutes of fame, and the idea that an artist could be as illustrious as the work he creates. With a unique, focused look at Warhol's life, this graphic novel biography offers insight into the turning point of Warhol's career and the time leading up to the creation of the Thirteen Most Wanted Men mural for the 1964 World's Fair, when Warhol clashed with urban planner Robert Moses and architect Philip Johnson and emerged to become one of the most significant artists of the 20th century.
