Rare Footage of Andy Warhol Editing a Photo Back in 1985

Andy Warhol was a pop art icon known for his innovative and unique style of art. In the video below, viewers are treated to a look at Warhol editing a digital photograph on an Amiga computer all the way back in 1985. The clip makes us realize just how far digital imaging has come in the past few decades:

Warhol, who claims at the end of the clip to never have used a computer other than the Amiga, seems to half know what he’s doing and half be making it up as he goes, which makes for an amusing time as you watch the artist at work. (Via PetaPixel)
