Andy Warhol (born Andrew Warhola on August 6, 1928) was an artist, filmmaker, writer, publisher, music producer, and actor. Regarded as one of the founders of the Pop art movement in the 1950's, he began making paintings of famous American products in the 1960's; Coca Cola and the Campbell's soup cans are among the most famous. Andy Warhol survived a gunshot wound to the chest on June 3, 1968; but died 9 years later, on February 22, 1987 in a New York City hospital from a sudden heart attack. He was 58 years old. Warhol is buried at St. John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Cemetery in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania.
