Pop and Chips
This is a digital piece that I did for a senior art class. It is inspired by two of Andy Warhol's pieces (Marilyn Monroe and Campbell's Soup), and by Halloween candy. A friend of mine brought extra Halloween candy to class one day to share, and I ended up picking a bag of chips, not to eat but rather because I was thrown aback by its awkward simplicity. The bag was plain yellow and just said "chips" with a very cheap image of two potato chips on the front. Immediately I thought of Andy Warhol and his obsession with mass production. I figured this was a perfect example of Warhol's prototype mass produced items.
