    Warhol painting Blondie using Amiga


  18. Andy Warhol was an early user of the Amiga and appeared at the launch. Warhol used the Amiga to create a new style of art made with computers, and was the author of a multimedia opera called “you are the one” which consists of an animated sequence featuring images of actress Marilyn Monroe assembled in a short movie with a soundtrack. The video was discovered on two old Amiga floppies in a drawer in Warhol’s studio and repaired in 2006 by the Detroit Museum of New Art.
