Art Is Everywhere: A Book About Andy Warhol -- Review


Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Last week we shared how math is everywhere. This week we are looking at a book called Art Is Everywhere: A Book about Andy Warhol by Jeff Mack. So today we are adventuring into the world of art and Andy Warhol. Andy Warhol was born as Andrew Warhola in Pennsylvania in 1928. His family moved to New York City shortly after. He became part of the Pop Art Movement. (Source) This book is recommended for ages 4 to 8.

From the Publisher:

This is the story of Andy Warhol—and how his pop art took the world by storm. From drawing shoes for a shoe company to his Campbell's Soup cans and Marilyn Monroe prints, Andy made art out of the everyday. People claimed Andy's art wasn't real art, but that didn't stop him from making it, plus movies, a magazine, a TV show, and more!

With Art Is Everywhere, Jeff Mack explores Warhol's fascination (and our own) with celebrity and fame and opens readers' minds to the possibilities for art in the world around us.

From Me:

Jeff Mack takes us into the world of Andy Warhol. The book explains his beginning in advertising and then how he saw art everywhere. It explains how he used common everyday items and created art like them. It is a fun introduction to Andy Warhol and let's our younger kids learn a bit about Pop Art and Andy Warhol. The illustrations are done in a Warhol manner and bring the entire book to life. It is well written. At the end of the book is a page sharing more details about Andy Warhol and even has the reader explore what outlets Andy Warhol would be using today if he was alive.  It is a fun way to look at art with kids. I hope you will check it out!
