The centre of 1960’s New York pop art revolutionaries was nothing but a dark and dingy work space until Billy Name came into Andy’s life. Billy was Andy’s lover, friend and had become his hands on personal assistant for everything Andy needed. Most importantly he was the one who brought The Factory to light and to life. The beginning of Warhol’s Manhattan art studio, taking its transformation into the celebration of outcast glamour, started with Billy’s use of aluminium foil and spray paint, which brought the silver sunken arty glamour of the Warhol scene, its presence as we know it today.
