’s iconic Campbell’s Soup Can is arguably the signature image of his career. Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Can reproduces an object of mass consumption in the most literal sense. The original artwork was silkscreened, a printmaking method originally invented for commercial use. In a semi-mechanized process, Warhol repeated the same basic soup can image on dozens of canvases.Warhol claimed that the Campbell’s Soup Can was his favourite work. Of Campbell’s Soup he said, “I used to drink it. I used to have the same lunch every day, for 20 years, I guess, the same thing over and over again. Someone said my life has dominated me; I liked that idea.”
