Portrait of Heroes - Famous for 15 Seconds

heath kane

£585.00

Andy Warhol famously said “in the future everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.” What he was referring to the rising impact that TV and broadcast media was having on society at the time.

Perhaps if Warhol were alive today he would say that everyone will be famous for 15 seconds, before our attention is taken away by a new message, digital notification or social media post. 

Today we all have the ability to live our lives through social media. We jostle to portray seemingly perfect lifestyles, broadcasting ourselves to potentially millions, in the hope of more ‘likes’, more adulation, more momentary hits of joy.
