A Warhol-Inspired NFT
Behind Warhol's bright colors and iconic imagery was a new approach to art. Warhol used an industrial process, silkscreening. No need for time consuming prep-work. Set the screen, push the ink, and BOOM! Art.
Far from toiling away in solitude, Andy's studio was a 'factory' where he explored endless repetition and variation. His work is an early example of generative art. The penultimate of which are soup cans.
There's no doubt Warhol would have loved NFTs.
Non-Fungible Soup will be available to view and trade on OpenSea.
“The idea is not to live forever; it's to create something that will.”
NFT art faces a lot of the same questions that Warhol's faced.
In both series of more than 50 printed soup cans, nothing changed but the colors or soup type. People asked, 'how is this art?'
There are no brush strokes, no splats. It's a screenprint, and really didn't look like a painting. It wasn't even all that original. And yet they're now an icon of 20th-century art.
10,000 digital apes seems eerily like the 2021 version of 50 soup cans or 100 Marilyns.
“I don't know where the artificial stops and the real starts.”
