Campbell's Soup Cans by Andy Warhol (American, 1928–1987) When Warhol first exhibited these Campbell’s Soup Cans in 1962, they were displayed together on shelves, like products in a grocery aisle. At the time, the Campbell’s Soup Company sold 32 soup varieties; each canvas corresponds to a different flavor. Warhol did not indicate how the canvases should be installed.
This iconic dress is called "The Souper Dress." It was made in 1966-1967. It was inspired by pop art. "Pop art featured glorified representations of ordinary objects such as soda cans and cartoon figures."
i have chosen Andy Warhol because i like how he uses simple compositions to make a large impression, i.e the single soup can, he uses bright colours and very little tone to make a large statement with one single picture. i also like his simplicity as it is very different to the other artists and pictures as this makes it all the more eyecatching
