Creepy Andy Warhol Sculpture Imagines the Artist at 83 [VIDEO]

Andy Warhol sculpture

If Andy Warhol were alive today, how would he react to modern culture? The iconic artist, who died in 1987 at age 58, would probably flip for internet microcelebrities on sites like YouTube, which affirms his “15 minutes of fame” theory.

To commemorate Warhol’s 83rd birthday this past Saturday, artist Edgar Askelovic created a sculpture that imagines what he would have looked like had he lived to see 2011.

The realistic, if creepy, rendering shows a Warhol that didn’t age very well, but still dresses for the chic downtown art scene (no fuddy-duddy cardigans for this old fella).

Check out the making-of video below:
