Opinion: Andy Warhol and Autism

According to some popular theories, Andy Warhol was on the Autism Spectrum. Although there is no way to test this, the “evidence” is quite convincing. Andy engaged in repetitive behaviors such as eating Campbell’s Soup nearly everyday and wearing only green underwear.  In addition, he struggled to answer interview questions ( it is unclear whether … Continue reading “Opinion: Andy Warhol and Autism”

The Music Of Silence

Hey everyone! It’s great to be back since I haven’t posted lately. I just finished my college finals yesterday which means I’m done writing essays (for now, at least) and I have more time to write about my interests.

I’m starting with the first theory I encountered; that … Continue reading “The New York Theory”

How I Got Started

When I was 16, I skipped my Chemistry class. It wasn’t such a great idea because I lived in a small town with nowhere to go. Instead of doing anything exciting, I went to the library and wandered over to the art section. That’s where I found it… The Famous Artist Annual: A Treasury of … Continue reading “How I Got Started”
