Yoko Ono

Meet Yoko Ono, the artist.

When Yoko was little, she had everything she could dream of in Japan, except time with her busy parents. She used to write wishes and tie them to the branches of the trees in the local temple to be less alone. When war broke out, Yoko was often hungry and had to use her imagination to transport her. After the war, she made her way to New York to meet free spirits and study art. She worked as artist, and hosted gatherings with her trailblazing friends, and then one day, John Lennon came to see her work. And together, they imagined a better world.

Andy Warhol

Meet Andy Warhol, the ground-breaking pop artist.

Little Andy was the tiniest and palest child of the Warholas, a humble couple from Slovakia who lived in Pittsburgh. Sketchbook glued to his hand, he loved every minute of drawing, but he was too shy to show his work to others, even to his family! As an adult he got a chance to publish his first illustration for a glamorous magazine. He turned his attention to the ordinary, like soup cans he ate from for lunch every day. He showed the world that the ordinary objects could POP, and founded a cultural movement. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the inspiring artist’s life.
