Andy Warhol

앤디 워홀(1928-1987)

  Andy Warhol was a leading figure in the Pop Art movement. Like his contemporaries Roy Lichtenstein and Robert Rauschenberg, Warhol responded to mass-media culture of the 1960s. His silkscreens of cultural and consumer icons—including Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Campbell’s Soup Cans, and Brillo Boxes—would make him one of the most famous artists of his generation. “The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do,” he once explained. Born Andrew Warhola on August 6, 1928 in Pittsburgh, PA, he graduated from the Carnegie Institute of Technology in 1949. Moving to New York to pursue a career in commercial illustration, the young artist worked for magazine such as Vogue and Glamour. Though Warhol was a gay man, he kept much of his private life a secret, occasionally referencing his sexuality through art. This is perhaps most evident in his drawings of male nudes from the 1950s, and later in his film Sleep (1963), which portrays the poet John Giorno nude. In 1964, Warhol rented a studio loft on East 47th street in Midtown Manhattan which was later known as The Factory. The artist used The Factory as a hub for movie stars, models, and artists, who became fodder for his prints and films. The space also functioned as a performance venue for The Velvet Underground. During the 1980s, Warhol collaborated with several younger artists, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Francesco Clemente, and Keith Haring. The artist died tragically following complications from routine gall bladder surgery at the age of 58, on February 22, 1987 in New York, NY. After his death, the artist’s estate became The Andy Warhol Foundation and in 1994, a museum dedicated to the artist and his oeuvre opened in his native Pittsburgh. Today, his works are held in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, and the Tate Gallery in London, among others

  앤디 워홀은 살아 생전 팝 아트 운동의 선두적인 인물이었다. 로이 리히텐슈타인이나 로버트 라우센버그같은 동시대 예술가들처럼, 워홀은 1960년대 대중매체 문화에 응답하였다. 마릴린 먼로, 엘리자베스 테일러, 캠벨 수프 캔 (Campbell Soup Cans), 브릴로 박스 (Brillo Box) 와 같은 문화적 그리고 소비문화적 상징들을 실크스크린에 담아낸 그의 작품들은 워홀을 그의 세대에서 가장 유명한 예술가로 만들어주었다. “그림이 가진 특징 중 가장 좋은 것은 바로 그림은 변하지 않는다는 점입니다. 그림 안의 사람은 실제로 변하고 있다고 하더라도 말이에요” 라고 그는 설명한 적 있다. 앤드류 워홀라 라는 이름으로 1928년 8월 6일 펜실베이니아의 피츠버그에서 태어난 그는 카네기 공과대학을 1949년에 졸업하였다. 뉴욕에서 상업적 삽화의 커리어를 추구하기 위해 이사한 그는 보그나 글래머 같은 잡지사를 위해서 일했었다. 워홀은 동성애자였으며 그의 사생활의 대부분을 비밀에 부쳤고 종종 그의 성 정체성을 예술을 통해서 알리기도 했다. 이는 아마도 1950년대에 그린 남성 누드화들에서 가장 잘 드러나고 있으며, 그 후에는 1963년에 개봉한 그의 영화 “잠” (Sleep) 에서 보여준 시인 존 조르노의 누드에서도 잘 드러난다. 1964년에 워홀은 스튜디오로 사용할 로프트를 미드타운 맨하탄의 이스트 47번가에 마련하였는데, 이는 나중에 더 팩토리 라는 이름으로 알려지게 된다. 작가는 더 팩토리를 그의 판화와 영화의 사료가 된 영화 배우들과 모델들 그리고 예술가들의 중심지로서 사용했다. 또한 이 공간은 밴드 벨벳 언더그라운드의 공연장으로 사용되기도 하였다. 1980년대에 워홀은 몇몇 젊은 예술가들과 콜라보를 했는데, 쟝-미셸 바스키아, 프란세스코 클레멘테, 키스 해링 등이 그와 함께 했다. 그는 58세의 나이에 1987년 2월 22일 뉴욕에서 쓸개 수술의 합병증으로 사망했는데, 그의 사후 그의 사유지는 앤디워홀 파운데이션이 되었으며, 1994년에는 작가와 그의 작품들을 위해 그의 고향 피츠버그에서 박물관으로 재탄생했다. 오늘날 그의 작품들은 시카고미술관, 뉴욕의 휘트니미국미술박물관, 그리고 런던의 테이트 갤러리 등에 소장되어있다.
