New Andy Warhol art found three decades later

Posted:
Andy Warhol was an American artist known as a leading figure in the movement known as "pop art." Much of his artwork was centered around a consumer product and public figures. We're talking about the famous Campbell's Soup Cans piece, and his works featuring celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley.

But, if you think you have seen everything that Andy Warhol has to offer; think again. The Andy Warhol Museum has announced the discovery of new works by the artist that have been trapped on a floppy disk for the past 30 years. The images were created on an Amiga computer back in 1985 and were unlocked by the Carnegie Mellon University Computer Club.

The art work may have been lost forever if it wasn't for artist Cory Arcangel, who saw a YouTube clip about the late Warhol promoting the Amiga's release back in 1985. That is when he reached out to the chief archivist at the Warhol Museum to search for the computer files.
