ANDY WARHOL’S BIRTHDAY

Being born is like being kidnapped. And then sold into slavery.

—Andy Warhol, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (1975)

Andy Warhol was born on 6 August 1928 in Pittsburgh, PA. Tomorrow would have been his 86th birthday, had he not died while undergoing gall bladder surgery in New York City on 27 February 1987. On his 6 August 1945, his 17th birthday, the first atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima; from that point onward he thought of “A-Bomb” as his cypher.

I have lots of Warhol images, film clips, quotations and reminiscence for you tomorrow so be sure to drop in.
