Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol was a human artist who had a history with Iris Wildthyme and he once painted the Doctor.

On 9 November 1965, the Eleventh Doctor told Clint Carra that Andy Warhol had invited him, Amy Pond and Rory Williams for soup, and that Warhol used the word "uncool". That was why the Doctor thought that people would use the word "uncool" in New York City. Clint told the Doctor that Warhol didn't move in his kind of circles. (AUDIO: Blackout)

During the summer of 1966, the first eleven known incarnations of the Doctor visited Warhol separately on Thursdays. Warhol painted a painting of the faces of those eleven incarnations. The painting later hung in the Paloma Centre, the largest collection of art ever. Warhol was fascinated by the Doctor's ability to change his face and enjoyed meeting each incarnation.

An android of Warhol, containing Warhol's memories, was placed in his exhibition. The android seemed embarrassed about his painting of the Doctor's incarnations. (PROSE: The War of Art) The Eleventh Doctor owned a version, also painted by Warhol, which also included the War Doctor as a silhouette. He couldn't find a place to put it in the TARDIS, and considered just telling Andy he had put it up somewhere. (COMIC: The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who)

While in a bubble prison, Iris Wildthyme imagined attending a party hosted by Warhol in London in 1966. Other guests included Mick Jagger, Twiggy (with whom Iris had a feud), Jimmy Page and Julie Christie. (AUDIO: Whatever Happened to Iris Wildthyme?)

The Eighth Doctor, Sam Jones and Iris Wildthyme were present when Warhol was shot in 1968. (PROSE: Femme Fatale)
