Andy Warhol Quotes:

“An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have.”

“Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.”

“I suppose I have a really loose interpretation of “work,” because I think that just being alive is so much work at something you don’t always want to do. The machinery is always going. Even when you sleep.”

“I’m afraid that if you look at a thing long enough, it loses all of its meaning.”

“Once you ‘got’ Pop, you could never see a sign again the same way again. And once you thought Pop, you could never see America the same way again.”

“If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There’s nothing behind it.”
