The authors of the idea of installing this mini-sculpture are the sculptor Mikhail Kolodko and the tourist scholar Fedor Sandor. Petite Andy shoots the camera to the side Slovak school. This can be seen as a certain symbolism, since the parents of Andy Warhol, who was born in the United States, come from the territory of modern Slovakia. It is also interesting that the sculpture has its back to the Museum.

However, the most complete collection of his works located in the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania), where more than 8,000 are collected his works, which he created in his art Studio “Factory” in new York. Vorgol was guided by the idea of mass creation of works of art in the same way as factories produce on conveyors products for supermarkets, it attracted its superstar guests to the creative process, and that’s why the Studio became a factory.

The original legend of the mini-sculpture “Andy Warhol” Nadezhda Popadyuk tells In her book “Uzhgorod – the world capital of mini-sculptures”. According to legend, in 1962, when the warhall factory had just started operating and was not yet in operation so Bohemian, it was visited by a young sculptor from Ukraine, who introduced himself to Vorgol as a countryman of his parents, because at that time he lived in Uzhgorod, only 113 kilometers from the village of Mikova, where they were from. Andy was very interested in the guest and asked him tell more about life and creativity in the country that my mother remembered with a warm word throughout my childhood. She was a very important person in life, because she was the one I inspired him to make creative art, because I made and sold flowers from canned food cans and corrugated paper, taught to draw and make collages from newspaper clippings. Vorgol and his unusual guest talked for more than two hours and at parting Ukrainian the sculptor gave Andy a rare camera, which the owner liked very much the silver factory never parted from him again, and it was with his help that he made the best photos that went down in pop art history. Returning to Uzhgorod, talented the sculptor installed a mini-sculpture of Warhol near the building of the Transcarpathian art Museum the Museum, and Andy is holding his legendary camera.
