Andy Warhol & Pop Art

Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup cans are key works of the 1960s Pop art movement.  Warhol used imagery, repetition and print to convey a message about mass production and consumerism after World War II.  Warhol stated, "pop art is all about liking things," and claimed he ate Campbell's soup everyday for twenty years. Warhol's soup cans raise the simply popular or everyday to the status of art.
