Throughout his career, Warhol kept his original style of creating art that was both commercial and advertorial. He was placed as the a leading figure in the 1950s Pop Art Movement.
He was known as a controversial artist during the 60s when he was making paintings of things that were known as iconic American items. Coca-Cola bottles, dollar bills and iconic celebrities like Marilyn Monroe were all explored by Warhol.
Warhol’s works are still some of the most expensive works of art to be sold around the world.
