Banksy’s Soup Can is an obvious nod to Andy Warhol’s famous 1962 series of Campbell’s Soup Can paintings that were later produced as prints. Contrary to Warhol’s homage to the endlessly reproduced images of consumer society, here Banksy offers a biting criticism of the supermarket giant who has come to take over the contemporary marketplace.
The print shows cans of the same flavour soup – as opposed to Warhol’s range of flavours – showing the stark reality and monotony, of surviving on a tight budget.
Printed in three colours on a cream background, the print evokes the vintage aesthetic that is now called upon by supermarkets such as Tesco to sell British products.
