Campbell’s Soup Can by Andy Warhol

campbell soup can by andy warhol

This particular piece of pop art was created by Andy Warhol. During the 1960′s Andy began making paintings of famous American products like Campbell Soup Cans. His painting included newspaper clippings, dollar bills, brand name products, and more. His philosophy is sort of strange- yet very interesting.

The philosophy of Andy Warhol: “What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coca Cola, Liz Taylor drinks Coca Cola, and just think, you can drink Coca Cola, too. A coke is a coke and no amount of money can get you a better coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the cokes are the same and all the cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.”

Andy’s Campbell Soup Can painting is yet one of his famous pieces or pop art. Andy Warhol played a very important role in the history of pop art.
