The Genius of Warhol.

For years he has been one of my ultimate icons. And this week it is the anniversary of his death. He has shot people from John Lennon to Elizabeth Taylor and helping Bowie and created 'Interview'. He has influenced everything from Pop Art to Album Covers, Music, Magazines and Films through the 60's to now.

The life he led was far from normal.....The Factory, Drag Queens, Socialites and underground controversial films were just a few factors that Andy surrounded himself with. One of the most important aspects that he has influenced is the use of polaroids to aid his vision and art and the unusual use of his filming techniques.

Still Fashion & Art tends to celebrate him today and there is an exhibition in New York dedicated to his works. 

Warhol is a religion.
