When Andy was popular, he often got invited to colleges to speak, not his cup of tea. He devised to send a double, which he did. When the story got out and schools demanded their money back, Andy said that the double knew more about what they wanted to hear than he did (The customer is always right). When he did get back and they asked him if he was Andy Warhol, he said, "No."

Is "what you see is what you get"? With Warhol, all was surface. Marilyn Monroe is beautiful. That's all you need to know. This font is NY Times, or whatever. Think of make-up, cosmetics, as the cosmos; it's everything you see. People complain about speech or writing being flowery, as if not pertaining to some essence. Warhol was not an intellectual. He simply saw the attraction of the superficial: hair, sunglasses, tatoos, Campbell soup cans, Marilyn Monroe.
