Some of you may be interested in this link:

Lost Warhol Amiga Film to Premiere at Museum of New Art (MONA) (ArtDaily.com)

The page includes an interesting story about how they uncovered the Amiga art done by Andy Warhol. The work, said to be a short digital film titled YOU ARE THE ONE has been restored, including its sound track. The site reports, "the digital stills were discovered on a floppy disk among thousands in Warhol’s estate."

Warhol was one of the more famous artists to use the Amiga. I remember him helping to introduce the Amiga at our gala launch event in New York back in 1985. During the show, Warhol used an Amiga in his unique style to paint a portrait of Debbie Harry, a well known pop star of the day (lead singer for the rock group Blondie, with hits like the "Heart of Glass" and "The Tide is High".)

I should note that the above ArtDaily.com page has no date stamp, so I'm not sure how old this information is.
