My painting “Soda Cans” was inspired by Andy Warhol’s Campbell Soup paintings. Andy Warhol was one of the most important pop artists. Early in his career he asked his mother to go to the grocery store and bring him one can of all the varieties of Campbell soups. He collected and painted 32 types of Campbell soups, and these paintings first were exhibited in Los Angeles gallery in 1962. Inspired by the idea of pop-art that consisted of realistic renditions of popular, everyday items, I went to the grocery store and collected all types of soda cans that were available for sale last year. The grid arrangement of soda cans and the flat colors of the different background of each, was my intention to directly reference Andy Warhol’s paintings of Campbell soup cans.
