How interesting. Has anyone read the book mentioned below?
I remember reading an article many years ago about the influence of the iconography particularly of the iconostasis on the development of his art. The author mentioned the use of symbolism and bright colours. Apparently as a child he went to Divine Liturgy every Sunday with his mother.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Andy Warhol's Religious and Ethnic Roots: The Carpatho-Rusyn Influence on His Art

FROM THE CRITICS
Booknews
Sharing Warhol's roots in a Pittsburgh Carpatho-Rusyn community, Hebenick (philosophy, U. of Dayton, Ohio) pays tribute on the 10th anniversary of the pop artist's death to his work and their heritage rooted in NE Slovakia, Ukraine, and Poland. In four studies (ethnographic, biographical, autobiographical, and aesthetic), the author traces the style of the creator of pop icons like silk-screened Campbell's soup cans and Marilyn Monroe images to the religiously-based folk art of Easter egg decorating (pysanky) and the sacred icons of the Greek Orthodox church. The only art appears on the cover and is traditional, not that of Warhol. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

I watched this last night--it was quite an interesting show. Gave a real insight into his mind and psyche. It seemed to dwell more on his movies which are lesser known than on his artwork. Overall a good piece. Very little of his upbringing and background however. Interesting to hear that he was friends with a Peter Herko (also of Rusyn background?) who while high on speed, danced out of one of the windows of "The Factory" thinking that he could fly, to his death.

Aren't Andy and his mother memorialized on Mt. St. Macrina??? Seem to remember that.
