He was also a pioneer in computer-generated art using Amiga computers that were introduced in 1984, two years before his death. He foundedInterview Magazine and was the author of numerous books, including The Philosophy of Andy Warholand Popism: The Warhol Sixties. He is also notable as a gay man who lived openly as such before the gay liberation movement. His studio, The Factory, was a famous gathering place that brought together distinguished intellectuals, drag queens, playwrights, Bohemian street people, Hollywood celebrities, and wealthy patrons.

The result is a series of doodles, photographs, and experiments, all distinctively Warhol: a three-eyed take on Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus, a crude Campbell’s soup can, and a very quirky self portrait. The images—and the process of retrieving them—are documented in a new exhibition called The Invisible Photograph series at the Carnegie Museum of Art. [The Warhol via Verge]
