Sorry, more can cartoons
Hopefully Andy Warhol is not rolling over in his grave over this one.
Here are some not so well known facts about this amazing artist:
- His very first movie was aptly named ‘Sleep’. It filmed his friend sleeping for a whopping 6 hours. Nine people attended the opening night and within the first hour two left… and then there where seven (who amazingly stayed right up to the end).
- Andy nearly died when he was shot in the chest by Valerie Solanis. Valerie was a founder of club called SCUM (Society for Cutting Up Men) and as a staunch feminist saw it her duty to rid the world of people like Andy, who she considered to be abusive and controlling. As a side point, it is relieving to note that she was the only member of the club.
- The high school art club excluded Andy from becoming a member, as he was considered better than the other members.
