Yesterday was Andy Warhol’s birthday! The famed artist was born on August 6, 1928 in Pittsburgh. Before starting his career, Warhol worked as a shoe designer and a commercial artist where he used a silk screen. In 1962 Andy had a solo show at the Ferus Gallery, but it was the 1964 group show, "The American Supermarket," which catapulted him to be the leading figure of the Pop Art movement.
