Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (Andrew Warhola) was an actor, used in the Art scene, to push the gay-transgender agenda and to popularised Pop Art, the doctrine of Pop Culture. He was educated at Carnegie Mellon University. His most famous works are the dyptich of mind controlled sex slave Marilyn Monroe (different twin alters of MPD) and Campbell Soup Cans (both in 1962, moral crisis of nihilism, announced by Friedrich Nietzsche).

He managed the Velvet Underground (with John Cale and Lou Reed, who later worked with David Bowie, Sterling Morrison CCNY) and Nico (friend of Bob Dylan and Laurel Canyon singer Jim Morrison), who promoted the use of heroin. Their debut album was released in 1964 by Verve Records (label of Laurel Canyon artists Frank Zappa).

Warhol announced the religion of fame (Crowley's motto Every man and woman is a star). He made paintings and prints of Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, Judy Garland, Brigitte Bardot and founded the Factory (Madonna, JM Basquiat, William Burroughs, Anita Pallenberg, Mick Jagger, Bod Dylan, Ultra Violet). Ultra Violet was the muse of Salvador Dali and member of the Mormon Church. He was active in the underground film scene with Kenneth Anger and George Kuchar (teacher of Courtney Love).

In the 70's he worked with the Iranian Pahlavi (Pallavicini) family. He helped to promote the use of cocain in the Studio 54 scene with Debbie Harry, Truman Capote, Michael Jackson, Bianca Jagger. Fab Five Freddy used his soup cans design in graffiti on trains (program Hip Hop).
