Biography: Andy Warhol was an American artist who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture and advertisement that flourished by the 1960s. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became a renowned and sometimes controversial artist. The Andy Warhol Museum in his native city, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, holds an extensive permanent collection of art and archives. It is the largest museum in the United States dedicated to a single artist. Warhol's art encompassed many forms of media, including hand drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, silk screening, sculpture, film, and music. He was also a pioneer in computer-generated art using Amiga computers that were introduced in 1984, two years before his death. He founded Interview Magazine and was the author of numerous books, including The Philosophy of Andy Warhol and Popism: The Warhol Sixties. He is also notable as a gay man who lived openly as such before the gay liberation movement. LESS
Several lost works from Andy Warhol have been rediscovered on a set of Amiga floppy disks dating from 1985. They may look pretty humble today, but back then, these pieces were marvels of modernity. Several pieces of Amiga hardware used by the artist were being held by the Andy Warhol Museum, and Cory Arcangel, a New York-based artist, contacted them back in 2011 about restoring it and retrieving any data remaining. With the help of the Carnegie Mellon University computer club and some special restoration equipment, Arcangel managed not only to extract the data of several image files, but also reverse-engineer the now-obsolete file format.
