Happy Birthday, Andy Warhol

"Art is what you can get away with."

The pop-art icon otherwise known as Andy Warhola, Jr. was born on this day in 1928.
 After a successful career as an illustrator, Warhol would become internationally famous
for his work as a painter, avant-garde filmmaker, record producer and author,
who also mingled in a diverse array of social circles.
He is one of only 7 artists to have ever had a single painting sell for 9 digits or more.
Warhol would lose his life due to cardiac dysrhythmia after routine gall bladder surgery in 1987.

"I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens"

"Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it."

"I never fall apart, because I never fall together."

"They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself."

"People should fall in love with their eyes closed.
Just close your eyes. Don’t look and it’s magic."
