He was able to mix fame and art too. His Marlyn Monroe and Elvis Presley portraits were enormously successful. By 1964 he was an internationally famous artist. One museum official said of him, "Andy was pop and pop was Andy."
The term "pop art" was coined in England by art critic Lawrence Alloway. Originally it meant popular objects found in everyday life and products in the mass media.
The term developed further and again in England an artist named Richard Hamilton listed the following:
