Art Is Everywhere: A Book About Andy Warhol (Hardcover)
This is the story of Andy Warhol—and how his pop art took the world by storm. From drawing shoes for a shoe company to his Campbell's Soup cans and Marilyn Monroe prints, Andy made art out of the everyday. People claimed Andy's art wasn't real art, but that didn't stop him from making it, plus movies, a magazine, a TV show, and more!
With Art Is Everywhere, Jeff Mack explores Warhol's fascination (and our own) with celebrity and fame, and opens readers' minds to the possibilities for art in the world around us.
Jeff Mack is a children's book author whose books include the Hippo and Rabbit series, Frog and Fly in Six Slurpy Stories, the Clueless McGee books, and Art Is Everywhere: A Book About Andy Warhol. He lives in Western Massachusetts where he continues to write and illustrate books, paint murals, and visit schools and libraries to talk about his work.
"As Warhol’s practice expands into silk screens, film, music, magazines, and television, Mack weaves in iconic details—Warhol’s penchant for wigs, collaboration, and mother—and sums up his worldview: “I think art is about liking things. It’s about seeing the things around us in a new way. Seeing them as pretty. EVERYTHING is pretty. Don’t you think?”" —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"This illustrated biography will engage readers with its conversational, first-person narration about what inspired Warhol’s artistry and what art can be. . .Ideal for the art classroom and in-class discussion, this friendly introduction to Warhol’s artistic inspirations, loosely framed around a biographical narrative, will spark curiosity in early elementary listeners as they brush through big questions about art and fame." —School Library Journal
