    The Campbell's Soup work is actually a screen print. It's a good example of Warhol's "pop art"- artwork that takes an everyday, mundane item and elevates it to the level of art. One of the things Warhol did with his pop art was to make the point that the everyday could become art.

    Because it is something completly ordinary. He took somthing that most people take for granted and placed and painted it in a way that makes it significant, he turned it into art. That is basically the basis of a lot of Warhol's work, turning something ordinary and turning it into art. Granted when he does a lot of the same type and just arranges it in different ways it can become repetitive and a bit boring.

    Because he was a ''pop artist'' he drew stuff that was very popular. and people liked campbells soup, so they liked his painting about campbells soup. hope this helped.
