Steve Kaufman (1960-2010)
Steven Alan Kaufman (also known as Steve Kaufman, born December 29, 1960 – February 12, 2010) was an American pop artist, sculptor, stained glass artist, filmmaker, photographer and humanitarian. His entry into the world of serious pop art began in his teenage years when he became an assistant to Andy Warhol at the famous “The Factory” studio.
In 1981 Kaufman met Andy Warhol, who nicknamed him ”SAK”, and became a significant influence on the 19-year-old Kaufman, who worked as Warhol’s assistant at his studio. Kaufman states; “As Warhol's assistant, I learned to silkscreen with oils that will last forever. That's the same process I use today. Andy Warhol never did giclée’s so neither will I."
Kaufman suffered a series of debilitating strokes beginning in 2004, dying of a heart attack in Vail, Colorado, on February 12, 2010, as he prepared for an art show. "If I stop doing shows, I might as well stop living. This is what I live for," Kaufman had once stated.
"I had a great life, so please don't cry for me. I've had the life of 100 men,"
