We all know that so far we have been talking about Andy Warhol and his Factory throughout all of these articles, and I think that because this our definite topic for all of these articles and blogs it is important for us to understand just why this type of artist and his ways of doing things were so cool and newsworthy in general. When it comes to Andy Warhol and his art you have to start thinking differently and definitely start thinking outside of the box and that is exactly what Warhol was all about in general and that is why he was such a famous artist. When you start to think differently than you usually do then you most likely are going to experience something very different than what you are used to and that will then elicit a different type of brain frequency that you then project out into the world and most likely on a canvass of any nature which could also be a blank page or really anything.
I think Andy Warhol definitely knew that what he was doing at the time was innovative and progressive in terms of what every other artist was doing back then and that is what made Warhol the epitome of the word cool. Andy Warhol seriously was one of the coolest people on the planet during his prime, and what is so crazy is that he represented all of the things that were against the norm and breaking all the rules in general, and that is what made everyone like him. Warhol wasn’t afraid to break the rules and do things and make it his own adaptation of his visions, and of course when you do something like that then you are obviously going to be getting a bunch of different perspectives towards your art. It’s not like everyone really like Andy Warhol, but it just so happened that so many different people really did like him and were obsessed with his art work, and of course he was one of the first contemporary artists to make millions of dollars through printmaking and all other sorts of things that were allowing him to make a bunch of money in the 60s and 70s, and it is Warhol’s career that we are going to discuss, as well as the Factory within this particular article.
What’s so crazy about all of this art that Andy Warhol made during his career is that in today’s times we might look at it and be like, oh well anyone could do this today that isn’t even that great but that is exactly what made it so great back then in the 60s. He seriously was the first person to think of doing things in a different way and to take photographs and then edit in them in psychedelic ways that made them look really trippy and things like that and of acid type of nature, and of course Warhol was known for a lot of drug use in general and his Factory was his workplace where a bunch of different artists and people who were obviously super cool would come hang out and see everything that Andy was up to and just have a good time. He created the hot water heater photo technique that change photography forever. Yes, the Factory that Andy Warhol put together was definitely the place to go hang out with the rich and famous people in New York City for quite awhile, and I think everyone was attracted to Andy, or at least cutting edge artists were attracted to Andy because he was doing things against the norms of society and was purposely trying to be provocative.
It is through all of Andy Warhol’s art that we can start to manage to even begin to think about his legacy as an artist and just as a human being who changed the entire world through art, and I think not many artists will ever get to the point that Andy Warhol did get to, but of course we are all still here looking up to people like Andy Warhol and what he did with the Factory as an example of where you would like to go with your careers in general and try to be just like Andy Warhol in some way or another through our own personal artworks.
