Andy Warhol is Dead.

25 years ago today Andy Warhol died.

Let us have a moment of silence for the most influential artist in modern history since Picasso.

I love Warhol. There is nothing he did that did not have an effect on me. The way he thought about life, art and both of their processes was well ahead of his time. Heck I think it is still ahead of our time.

In honor of his brilliant mind here are some of my favorite Warhol Quotes

Once you ‘got’ Pop, you could never see a sign again the same way again. And once you thought Pop, you could never see America the same way again.

An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have.

Don’t pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.

And to end my very favorite of all the things Andy Warhol ever said:

If you didn’t have fantasies you wouldn’t have problems because you’d take whatever was there. But then you wouldn’t have romance, because romance is finding your fantasy in people who don’t have it.
