Name: Vegetable Soup
Artist: Andy Warhol
Location: Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, USA
Andy Warhol began as a commercial illustrator and became a very successful one. His first exhibit was in the the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles in 1962 where they showed his 32 Campbell's Soup Cans, 1961 - 62. From then on, most of Warhol's best work was done over a span of about six years, finishing in 1968, when he was shot. Back then , his creativity flowed from one central insight: that in a culture glutted with information, where most people experience most things through TV and print images that become boring because they are repeated again and again, there is role for affectless art.
