If you’re interested in Warhol – his life and work – then check out this great documentary I just finished (below).
In two parts, Warhol’s life is covered from the time of his childhood – where he spent countless hours at church with his mother staring at religious icons that share a resemblance with his eventual work with celebrity icons – to the time of his near-death when he was shot by an enraged wanna-be writer and ultimately the end of his life in an unfortunate hospital accident that Warhol himself feared would happen.
Throughout, his art and career are examined – from his early commercial work to his soup cans, his screen-prints to his films. The Factory, his famous studio, is featured along with a list of characters that filled those walls.
Members of Warhol’s social and career world are interviewed in the film, including snip-its from his brother, John Warhola.
It’s a great look at the life and work of one of the world’s most famous modern artists.
