I have been a fan of Andy Warhol's since I completed a paper on him as an undergrad at the University of Toronto. The fact that he had a movement disorder and you could clearly see signs of it in his work intrigued me. As someone who has a similar diagnosis, who hides it behind perfected images, it was good to know that despite everything I too could be an artist.
He may not have been hands-on with all his works but his influence definitely dictated the lack of perfection with the finished product. One thing you can say about his portfolio is that no matter what you can always tell exactly what the focal point of the individual pieces were. Whether that be an Elvis, a Marilyn, or a Campbell's soup can.

Speaking of Campbell's soup, you can receive complimentary admission every Tuesday to Andy Warhol Revisited if you bring a can of Campbell's soup to the Revolver Gallery. All cans will be donated to Toronto's Daily Bread Food Bank.
To date I have been to the exhibit twice. As you can tell from some of the images within this post works have been rotating (or revolving) around the gallery as some pieces are added or removed.
