Andy Warhol Campbell's Soup Yellow Blue

Andy Warhol Campbell's Soup Yellow Blue


This portrait of Andy Warhol is part of a series of Warhol portraits. In this series I used Andy Warhol art prints mixed with paper sourced in the streets to build the collages. The portraits are lasercut from the paper collage and put on a canvas. In this art work I used a print from the Campbell’s Coup Can series.

The Campbell’s Soup Cans is a series of works produced by Warkol in 1962. It consists of 32 canvases with on each canvas a variety of the campbell’s soup cans available at the time. The series was shown at Warhols first solo gallery exhibition at het Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles and marked the westcoast debut of pop art. In 1965 Warhol made a series of 20 paintings in which he used the Campbell’s tomato soup can. In this series he replaced the Campbell’s yellow, white and red with a variety of colors.

For this series I made use of the backsides of posters sourced in the streets. When I peel the posters of the city walls more often than not remnants of paint, rust or graffiti on the wall beneath the posters come off as well. Leaving nice textures and colors on the backsides of the posters. In this series I worked a lot with the beautiful patina found on these backsides.
