Steve Kaufman

Steve Kaufman worked as assistant to Andy Warhol at the Factory until 1989 when he opened his own studio in New York. He soon began to employ homeless and old gang members from Los Angeles and intended part of the proceeds he receives to these causes through his foundation Give Kids A Break.


Kaufman is particularly interested in the artistic effect produced by using images of icons such as Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Elvis, and John F. Kennedy. He also incorporates historical figures such as Beethoven, Mozart or Shakespeare, and presents them like stars of today. Kaufman embellishes his limited editions in an innovative way that endows each print with a unique design. Today Kaufman’s work is included in many major collections including the Amsterdam Museum, Andy Warhol Foundation, and the Saatchi Collection.
