Andy Warhol had the ultimate Pop Art rise to fame. In a time when dreams, goods, and Hollywood stars were at the mercy of the public, Pop Art fed into the growing desires for mass production, consumerism, and pop culture. This irony, the illusion of wealth, and materialism further shaped Warhol's art and prints of Campbell Soup Cans, Coca-Cola bottles, flowers, and more.

The 1960s were run by Rock N' Roll, the cult of the celebrity, commercialism, and it all fueled Andy Warhol. Celebrity portraits of Elizabeth Taylor, Elvis, Mick Jagger, and Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol have become icons in their own right. The pop artist's portrayal of the icon after her death in 1962 can be seen as a beautiful tribute. However, Andy Warhol paintings are tragic omissions that highlight the cruelty of our human behaviors and society. As much as Marilyn Monroe was consumed by fame, so too was she the object of society's obsession. Encounter the myth, the legent, and Pop Art idol at Moco Museum.
