Warhol digital art discovered on floppy disks


A collection of digital artwork by legendary artist Andy Warhol has been rediscovered after nearly thirty years.

In 1985, Warhol used an Amiga computer to demonstrate its graphic design software, saving his experiments on floppy disks which were kept in the Andy Warhol Museum’s archives.

The art was long-forgotten, until artist Cory Arcangel found a YouTube video of the Amiga product launch and started an investigation into the lost disks.

Twenty eight digital images, including a recreation of Warhol’s iconic ‘Campbell’s Soup Cans’, have been successfully restored.

Find out more about the art here and tell us what you think of Warhol’s digital designs.
