.12


I used to drink it.I used to have the same lunch every day, for twenty years, I guess, the same thing over and over again.

"Pop art is about liking things," and claimed that he ate Campbell's soup every day for 20 years. For him, it was the quintessential American product: he marveled that the soup always tasted the same, like Coca-Cola, whether consumed by prince or pauper.

Warhol searched for iconic or easily recognisable imagery, and then altered them enough so that they became his own. Consequently, a print of a Campbell’s Soup can became a great work of art simply because Warhol said it was art. The more his art was ridiculed, the more recogniseable it became and the higher its value.
Can you feel the sarcasm?
