Born in Pittsburgh, PA, to working class parents who emigrated to America from Slovakia before he was born, Andy Warhol rose to fame rebuking traditional art and manufacturing for himself a persona associated with both fame and mystery.
Warhol began his career in New York City as a magazine illustrator but his drawings soon began to gain attention and he began exhibiting his work publicly in the 1950s. In the 1960s, he began his work on his famous soup can series and thus leapt into the American spotlight.
