Andy Warhol’s nephew, James Warhola will give a conference about his uncle on Saturday 10th May at 18:00.
James Warhola was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1955. A large influence during his childhood was his artistic family, especially his famous uncle, Pop artist-Andy Warhol. From an early age of watching his uncle illustrate shoes, James wanted to be an illustrator. Like his uncle, he attended the famous Tam O’ Shanter art classes and graduated from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1977. A move to New York City allowed him to hone his painting skills at the prestigious Art Students League and to freelance illustration and design work. In 1987, an art director handed him a kid’s book manuscript, instructing him to do as he pleased. It was called ‘The Pumpkinviile Mystery’ and became an instant Halloween favorite. He has since illustrated over 30 books, several of which he has written, as well. These works have garnered him several state awards for Best Children’s Book and, in 2004, he received the International Reading Association’s Award for Best Non-Fiction Picture Book for his autobiographical story: “Uncle Andy’s.” Warhola has been featured nationally on NPR’s Weekend Edition, All Things Considered, and Fresh Air. James Warhola splits his time between the Hudson Valley of New York and Baltimore, Maryland.
This event will take place in the auditorium. Conference language is English with Turkish simultaneous translation. Free of admissions.
