The most important thing I learned from Andy Warhol

I just came back from the Warhol exhibit in Edmonton (at the new Alberta Art Gallery). Inspiring. Moving. That’s in short what I thought about the exhibit. And the Gallery itself is a very impressive piece of modern architecture.

Back to Warhol, he once said:
“What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.”

My 2¢:
The doors are wide open to all of us.
Isn’t that perhaps the point Andy was trying to make with the above quote?
Your camera, your laptop—probably as good as it gets.
The world is waiting on you.
Taste Younique.
Give people something to talk about.
The world is waiting on you.
