About

Explore the extraordinary life and work of one of the world’s most famous pop artists, with Andy Warhol at Tate Modern.

See some of Warhol’s most iconic artwork, including pop images of Marylin Monroe, Coca-Cola and Campbell soup cans, plus works never seen in the UK before.

25 works from the artist’s Ladies and Gentlemen series – portraits of Black and Latinx drag queens and trans women – are shown for the first time in 30 years.

Born in 1928 to working-class parents from present-day Slovakia, Warhol moved from Pittsburgh to New York in 1949. He initially worked as a commercial illustrator, before transforming pop art with his colourful depictions of US culture.
