“In the future, everyone will be a panda for 15 minutes”

Pandy Warhol, Created by Rob S.

 

We recently came across this work of art, from the 1970’s, the era of “Pop Art” most exemplified by the late Andy Warhol.  What is not widely known, is that Andy had a younger brother named “Pandy” who was also an artist, as well as a panda (you can see that Andy’s coloring came from the panda side of the family, although not the general build)

While Andy Warhol claimed that “In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes,”  his brother Pandy Warhol had a different philosphy.  His biographer, Rob S. uncovered this statement: “In the future, everyone will be a panda for 15 minutes.”

Seems like a no-brainer to us!

      Thanks, I will definitely check it out! Ok, I’ve just checked it out. Never saw this one before, but there is another Andy Warhol Panda that I have seen, which is a more straightforward image of a panda.
