Andy Warhol was born Aug. 6, 1928, meaning he would have been 86 years old were he alive today. Sadly, he died in 1987, at the age of 58, but Warhol had an incredible life that many still seek to emulate. Perhaps known vaguely by some as the artist who created that colorful Marilyn Monroe portrait or the guy who was really into Campbell's soup, a deeper dive into his particular brand is truly worth it.
Warhol may not have always been appreciated in his time -- Bob Dylan famously took one of Warhol's "Double Elvis" works after an awkward collaboration and then traded it for a sofa -- but he cemented his place as a boldly iconic celebrity, and a work of art himself.
