Pyramid Selling Spreads
This is the complete version of 'Liquid Capitalism', with all twenty cans formed into two pyramid stacks, in a kitchen setting. Using pin-sharp vector graphics for any size, sold in A2 format, but requests taken for larger sizes.
When Andy Warhol painted Campbell soup cans onto 32 canvases in 1961, many Europeans thought his pop art based on product packaging was a critique of US capitalism. It wasn't; he was painting his lunch: soup and Coca-Cola. He loved money, so he painted dollar bills; he admired film stars so he painted Monroe and Taylor. Subverting ubiquitous capitalism in modern life; that is my job :-).
Here, the iconic soup can is liquid capitalism; in any flavour, as long as it is processed. In 1961 there were 32 flavours of Campbells, who commanded 80% of the tinned soup market. That's about the same as Amazon's share on everything today. Without global regulation or checks and balances, 'concentrated capitalism' makes the chickens scream, preserves the shrimps in BP oil and in Tesco's value range, every little hurts...
