Andy Warhol's exploration of new styles and techniques inspired many artists throughout his career, and he kept on breaking new artistic ground until his untimely death in 1987.
In 1985 Warhol was approached by Commodore International to create digital artworks on the Commodore Amiga 1000 using software called Graphicraft, but the images he created were thought to be lost until Cory Arcangel and the Carnegie Mellon Computer Club discovered these bold images on decaying floppy disks.
A documentary about the recovery of these digital artworks called "Trapped" will premiere at the Carnegie Library Lecture Hall in Pittsburgh on May 10th.
Digital artworks generally don’t command a very high price at auction, but something tells me Warhol’s digital works will be worth millions.
