So many people seem to prefer my silver-screenings of movie stars to the rest of my work. It must be the subject matter that attracts them, because my death and violence paintings are just as good.
The most exciting attractions are between two opposites that never meet.
I'd asked around 10 or 15 people for suggestions. Finally one lady friend asked the right question, 'Well, what do you love most?' That's how I started painting money.
I'll bet there are a lot of artists that nobody hears about who just make more money than anybody. The people that do all the sculptures and paintings for big building construction. We never hear about them, but they make more money than anybody.
Voyeurism is a director's job description. It's an artist's, too.
I always like to see if the art across the street is better than mine.
I'm afraid that if you look at a thing long enough, it loses all of its meaning.

Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.
I'm the type who'd be happy not going anywhere as long as I was sure I knew exactly what was happening at the places I wasn't going to. I'm the type who'd like to sit home and watch every party that I'm invited to on a monitor in my bedroom.

Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.
I love Los Angeles, and I love Hollywood. They're beautiful. Everybody's plastic, but I love plastic. I want to be plastic.
If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There's nothing behind it.
What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest.
