Campbell's Soup Warhol Line

Campbell's Soup is releasing a special edition Andy Warhol Tomato Soup line based on Warhol's original soup label art. These are to celebrate Warhol's 50th Anniversary that he did his first paintings of the soup cans. They will be sold at Target Stores starting this weekend.

The Pop Artist exhibited his soup-can paintings at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles in 1962 which was his first West Coast Gallery show.

Art imitates life and now life imitates art! Check out this article.
