Andy Warhol famously demonstrated that art could be as mundane and mechanical as a can of soup or a bottle of soda. But contrary to his reputation as a mechanical figure, Andy Warhol was a biocentric artist with a deep interest in non-human life. Author Anthony Grudin examines this contradiction, which has been overlooked by most of the artist’s commentators.

Anthony Grudin is the author of Warhol’s Working Class: Pop Art and Egalitarianism.
