Andy Warhol

A Depressed Artist
Andy Warhol, for all we know, was a depressed and perhaps bipolar artist.  These are the facts, I am just recounting them.  He decided at a young age that he wanted to create modern art that would be in the MoMA and that pretentious and semi-pretentious artsy people would like.  He decided the only way to do this was to make an image of duplicated soup cans and to make an image of Marilyn Monroe.  His plan worked and he is now in the MoMA.  He was probably a pretentious person and would not laugh at a fart joke and he probably would, if alive today, be an outspoken opponent of George W. Bush and he' be a really big flaming artsy liberal.
