  1. i LOVED this quote that the narrator said “i think he would’ve liked to have made her portrait. i thought she looked very, a bit like andy, a bit intoxicated with the magic of the stardust sprinkled over the other side of the barricade.”

  2. He was a very, very smart person. A good business man. An eccentric business man but artists Idk about that. I don't discredit him because he came up with his own ideas and concepts. He also used other people's work to get rich and call himself an artist. It's a 50/50. I can see why artist would be offended by it.

  3. To everyone who hates Warhols art I'm sure he would thank you for those of us who love it I'm sure he would thank us that is what are is supposed to do ! We are supposed to feel something about it . That's the deeper meaning to all art plus whatever comment the artist is making in the piece

  4. One person can say his art is interesting. Another can say that it isn't. It is up the the single viewer whether a piece of art is enjoyable. Nobody can define whether art is interesting since it applies to all who view it.

  5. Art of fashion, just cocaine delirium and banality… His art is an apology to consumism and capitalism, an apology of all the defects of the human race, and a deception of the high class and an insult to the common sense. Hail to the Art murderer.

  6. As much I have tried endlessly to comprehend What Mr Warhol's work is really about – I simply cannot see his so called "artistic contribution" – I rather see his work as a promoter of the changing society's appeal & voracity for advertising & glossy graphics over painting & traditional art's mediums……. quite frankly do not see what difference he made….

  7. people really need to stop discrediting warhol, and saying he has no influence on modern culture, art, music, fashion, and in general the way we live. by all means, dislike the art. hate on his ideas and talk crap about the avant garde. without warhol we likely wouldn't have bowie, lou reed, and many modern and commercial artists we see today. he changed the face of art, so hate on it if you must (and only if you absolutely must), but don't for a second have any doubt that he was influential. because he was massively influential

  8. i think there's no point in trying to read any sort of deeper meaning into warhol's art, and a lot of people just can't get their head around it (including the presenter). they try to see "something" but there is nothing. no more meaning, deepness or significance than there is in a tv-commercial. and i guess that's what makes it sort of significant, and that's the genius of andy warhol. there is absolutely nothing in there.

  10. "everyone will be famous for 15 mins" is so true cause you can see all these social media trends with people just blowing up overnight for a stupid video and then disappear off the minds of the general public within the next 2 weeks

  11. pardon me, but not all of us embark on the consumer/ celebrity driven lifestyle warhol was so obsessed with. not all of us watch tv, or buy the latest magazines and fashions, nor do we all idolise actors, and other egomaniacs. it's remarkable how myopic people become when they talk about him; ascribing us all with his obsessions. that's totally incorrect. whilst i like some of warhol's work's composition, and his use of colour and technique, i wouldn't really mind if he never existed. i see much more substance in other artists, and i imagine warhol had nightmares about not being able to match their abilities, hence his perpetual need to connect with more substantial individuals, which gave him a sense of importance. i see him as an illustrator, and that is where his artistic talent resides. we are talking way too much about these banality driven "modern artists" and i wonder what gems we have overlooked, as art critics and museums are so dazzled by their nonsense. get a grip. basquiat was much more interesting, by far, and like many other real artists, perished in this insane warholian universe, that statements like the one offered up in this programme created. i did very much enjoy the other three accompanying documentaries, though.

  12. What is that song around 38:00?? I must know….I absolutely love that descending bass riff. Sounds so sexy and dark. Kinda reminds me of Pink Floyd's "Lucifer Sam" a bit. Can anyone tell me what it is? I've searched far and wide, and just cannot find it….though it sounds super familiar. I assumed it was a Velvet Underground song, but after listening to damn near every song they ever released, I didn't find it. Though, it did reignite my love for the Velvets.  🙂

  13. Calcified chalky coral knives cut into the ruby red wine veins of fleshy marshmallow bellies, bleeding out a thin sheen of silvery rainbow hologram oil puddles, filling the spring air with the scent of bloody knees and cut grass.

  14. I'm actually not a huge fan of Warhol's actual art, but….I think he was a master of aestheticism; blurring the lines between cookie-cutter kitsch & the holy masterpiece, low class & high class, serious & playful, etc. He was incredibly committed to living out his aesthetic ideals, right down to his silvery plastic blank-template personality. Dali was similar in that respect, albeit coming from a very different perspective. I don't like Warhol as an artist all that much…and if I ever had met the guy, I doubt I'd like him much as a person. But…as an aesthetic ringmaster, he was quite the idiosyncratic genius. In short, he was interesting, more than most people ever could be.
