I think the most famous "pop art" artist was Andy Warhol. Andy Warhol was an American artist who lived from 1928-1987 and was one of the most popular pop artist in the world. Warhol’s most famous works consisted of paintings for Campbell’s soup cans, Exploding Plastic Inevitable, and Marilyn Diptych. Raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Warhol began his career path as a commercial illustrator, but after showing his art at multiple galleries, he began to be recognized for his art and its influential and controversial aspects.
Warhol was a wide talent from his paintings and films, to creating a magazine and forming a band. Warhol was also coined for creating the phrase “15 minutes of fame”.
