Beck's | Warhol 100 | Charity Auction

Throughout his lifetime, Andy Warhol continually reinvented who he was both as an artist and icon to the public. In the 1960s through the 1980s, Warhol depicted himself as the subject matter of his artwork whether it was in his photo booth self-portraits of the early 1960s, his television show in the early 1980s on MTV called “Andy Warhol’s Fifteen Minutes”, or his final series of self-portraits in 1986 known as the “fright wig” self-portraits, Warhol understood that his legacy and public image were as valuable as the silk screen artworks he created. Today, Warhol continues to inspire and excite cultures around the world, and his personal image is as iconic and recognizable now as it was during his lifetime. Andy Warhol famously said, “If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface: of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There’s nothing behind it.”
