Pintor, cineasta, productor discográfico, autor, celebridad, intelectual: Andy Warhol era todas estas cosas. Y ahora puede agregar "títeres de dedo" a la lista. Nos parece irónico que el gran artista pop sea ahora un juguete, y creemos que Warhol estaría orgulloso. El títere de Andy Warhol mide aproximadamente 4 pulgadas de alto y está muy bien detallado para ser algo tan pequeño. Viste una chaqueta de raso rojo muy artística y un suéter de cuello alto negro, y su cabeza está coronada por una espectacular mata de cabello blanco. También está magnetizado para que pueda pegarlo a su refrigerador, archivador o lata de sopa Campbell.

About the Artist

Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (American, 1928 - 1987) was a visual artist, film director, and producer who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, advertising, and celebrity culture that flourished by the 1960s, and span a variety of media, including painting, silkscreening, photography, film, and sculpture. Some of his best-known works include the silkscreen paintings Campbell's Soup Cans (1962) and Marilyn Diptych (1962).

About the Brand

The Unemployed Philosopher's Guild

The origins of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild are shrouded in mystery. Some accounts trace the Guild's birth to Athens in the latter half of the 4th century BCE. Allegedly, several lesser philosophers grew weary of the endless Socratic dialogue endemic in their trade and turned to crafting household implements and playthings. (Hence the assertions that Socrates quaffed his hemlock poison from a Guild-designed chalice, though vigorous debate surrounds the question of whether it was a "disappearing" chalice.)

Others argue that the UPG dates from the High Middle Ages, when the Philosophers Guild entered the world of commerce by selling bawdy pamphlets to pilgrims facing long lines for the restroom. Business boomed until 1211 when Pope Innocent III condemned the publications. Not surprisingly, this led to increased sales, even as half our membership was burned at the stake.

More recently, revisionist historians have pinpointed the birth of the Guild to the time it was still cool to live in New York City's Lower East Side. Two brothers turned their inner creativity and love of paying rent towards fulfilling the people's needs for finger puppets, warm slippers, coffee cups, and cracking up at stuff.

Most of the proceeds go to unemployed philosophers (and their associates). A portion also goes to some groups working on profound causes.
