FRAN LEBOWITZ

«In the deluge of comments that descended on Sotheby's disposition of Andy Warhol's earthly possessions, perhaps the only unarguable point was made by Fran Lebowitz, the humorist, who had written a column for the artist's Interview magazine. Asked how he might be feeling about the event, she said: Andy must be furious that he's dead»

ANDY WARHOL & STEVE JOBS

Warhol took Sean's spot in front of the computer, and Jobs showed him how to maneuver the mouse. Warhol didn't get it; he lifted and waved the mouse as if it were a conductor's baton. Jobs gently explained that th mouse worked when it was pushed along a surface. Warhol kept lifting it until Jobs placed his hand on Warhol's and guided it along the floor. Finally Warhol began drawing, staring at the «pencil» as it drew on the screen

«MUSCLES ARE GREAT»

«Muscles are great. Everyone should have at least one they can show off».

-Andy Warhol


Warhol's fascination with muscles and bodybuilding was obvious early in the seventies. Mr Bodybuilding himself, Arnold Schwarzenneger later remembered of that era: «I became very good friend with Andy Warhol and used to hang out at the Studio in the 70's because he was a big believer in bodybuilding and (like other hip celebrities) helped get bodybuilding out of the dungeon to make it a hip activity to do".

ARCHIE

We wandered back to the front room, where there were now four patrons, and the same black hulk bouncing his balls to Thelma Houston's «Don't leave me this way». Andrea wanted to leave immediately, Bianca was tittering nervously, and Andy stood there, trying to look without us seeing him look. Then the dancer strutted his stuff to our side of the bar and started doing disco knee bends in front of Andy's face. That's when Archie gave his shaft a lick, and the bartender, in full leather, asked us to leave. It became one of the standards of our Abbott and Costello act. Archie getting us trrown out of the Anvil, the perfect Andy Warhol anectode,, in which the supposed decadent is revealed as an awkward innocent after all»

«I NEVER READ. I JUST LOOK AT PICTURES»

«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»

Mr. Hirst started the spot series in 1986. “At the time I was doing sort of collages that were a bit like Nicholas de Staël or Hans Hoffmann paintings and I was resolving a lot of formal problems with color,” he said. “What made me keep doing them is they always looked great. The idea was that it was an endless series. It’s a conceptual idea rather than reality.”
The earliest spot paintings were done directly on the wall, he added, “so they looked like a giant machine had painted them.”
“I was sort of trying to deny that there was an artist, so there was this kind of infinitely happy paintings,” Mr. Hirst said. But over the years his idea has gone through many transformations. He went through a phase where he wanted to make sure the viewer would know the paintings were man-made.

GEORGE CONDO ON HIS KANYE WEST RECORD

.“I really like that idea of a Shakespearian thing,” West told Condo about this painting of a severed head wearing a crown. The piece’s two contrasting styles -- “cubism and classicism forged together in a single painting” — dovetail, Condo says, with West’s music, with its “layers of different styles happening simultaneously.” What did Kanye see in the picture that made him like it? “His tragedy was a kind of exile that Kanye imposed upon himself,” Condo says. “He was free from exile by having the cathartic moment in the image. He’s alive in the painting, you know what I mean? In a strange way it’s like, he opened his eyes.”

«My movement consist of only one person. There are several person whose work has similarities to certain aspects or features of what I'm doing, but nobody has all of them. Even Andy Warhol, who I am often compared to, is in fact a very, very different kind of artist. Andy has been a big influence as an exemple of both what to be and what not to be. I have learned a lot of things from Andy from about how to deal with people and how to deal with «the public's «image» of me.

«MUSCLES ARE GREAT: EVERYBODY SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST ONE THAT THEY CAN SHOW OFF»

NEW SCENE

The nightlife is running me down. I can't even drag myself up on the pillow. And I'm still worried about getting arrested for leaving the Interviews up at Nenna's school. What if there was a naked picture in that issue? I'm afraid to look. They only arrest the publisher. I'm the publisher, Fred's the president. Oh, God. I don't want to think about it. What was Larry Flynt when they arrested him? The publisher? Why don't they arrest the president-or the editor? Bob could just write his «Out» column from jail. It would be a new scene for him to cover

ELEPHANT EARS

«The next afternoon Andy signed books at the Madison Avenue Bookshop. There was a long line of fans and pals, and it moved very slowly, because in addition to inscribing each book to each buyer personnally, Andy also did a drawing on the title page-a soupcan, banana, heart, or flower. When he found someone cute, he flipped through the book and scribbled something every fifty pages or so, little surprises to be found later. And for people he knew he sketched a stylized penis or vagina, though when someone asked what the latter was, he answered «elephant ears».
