From the thirty-two canvas CAMPBELL'S SOUP CANS to the MARILYN DIPTYCH, Andy Warhol's silk-screen prints are the epitome of Pop Art: witty, gimmicky and unafraid of repetition. Obsessed with consumerism and the cult of celebrity, Warhol exalted the "surface of things" – and yet he was a man of deep complexity. In ANDY, Typex captures the remarkable life of the king of Pop Art, from his working-class upbringing in Pittsburgh to the dizzying heights of his celebrity. Spanning a period that began with the "talkies" and ended with the advent of house music, it is also a memorable portrait of 20th century pop culture and the stars who defined it: from Elvis to Greta Garbo, Truman Capote to Lou Reed. Taking in Warhol's early career as a commercial illustrator, his relationship with the Velvet Underground and the development of his own instantly recognisable style, Typex's ANDY is an exhilarating portrait of a transcendent artist and a master self-publicist. Intensively researched, this 568-page graphic novel - with silver edgestain on the pages - is the first to tell the complete life story of the iconic pop artist. "As an art object, it's unlikely to be outdone by any new release any time soon.", Library Journal "the utterly irresistible Andy: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol by Typex (SelfMadeHero) will hit the mark with art fans, whether they love or loathe its subject.", The Guardian, Best Books of 2018

Typex is a comics artist and illustrator. His first graphic biography, Rembrandt, was commissioned by the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and published in English by SelfMadeHero. He has illustrated numerous children's books and his illustrations frequently appear in national newspapers and magazines. He lives in Amsterdam.
