Andy Warhols mest kjente sitat er at «i framtida vil alle være kjendiser i femten minutter». Men det var ikke det eneste sitatet som kom fra hans munn. Her har vi samlet noen andre som forsvarer sin plass.

Om kunst

«Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art»

«Art is what you can get away with»

«I just happen to like ordinary things. When I paint them, I don’t try to make them extraordinary. I just try to paint them ordinary-ordinary»

«An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have»

Om livet

«Being born is like being kidnapped. And then sold into slavery»

«The most exciting attractions are between two opposites that never meet»

«Sex is more exciting on the screen and between the pages than between the sheets»

«Isn’t life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?»

«They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself»

Om seg selv

«I’m afraid that if you look at a thing long enough, it loses all of its meaning»

«I am a deeply superficial person»

«I have Social Disease. I have to go out every night. If I stay home one night I start spreading rumours to my dogs»

«It’s not what you are that counts, it’s what they think you are»

Om litt av hvert

«If you wear a wig, everybody notices. But if you then dye the wig, people notice the dye»

«But I always say: One’s a company, two’s a crowd and three’s a party»

«In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes»

«Don’t pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches»

Om døden

«It would be very glamorous to be reincarnated as a great big ring on Liz Taylor’s finger»

«I’m not afraid to die; I just don’t want to be there when it happens»
