About the author (1988)

He then worked as a commercial artist in New York City. In the early 1960s, Warhol became the most famous pioneer of "pop art," which used comic books, advertisements, and consumer goods as subject matter.

It was Warhol who predicted that, "in the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.
