In the series of children's books, Little People, Big Dreams , the world-famous pop-art artist, Andy Warhol, is presented here. With drawings, historical photos and a biographical timeline, we get closer to the pioneering artist from when he lived as a boy and immigrant from Slovakia with his parents in Pittsburgh until he broke through on the big stage in the 60s.
Already as a boy, Andy Warhol was busy drawing - but too shy to show his work to others, even his family. He turned his gaze to the ordinary, such as cans of soup that he ate from for lunch every day. As an adult, he got a chance to publish his first illustration for a glamorous magazine. Warhol showed the world that ordinary objects could tell stories, and he founded a cultural movement.
