Pink Soda is a British brand created in 1983 that has often distorted and popularized the codes of fashion. While it is customary to say that Andy Wharol personnifies the American dream, a first Campbell's soup iconic paper dress, replica of the original work, was created at the initiative of the artist and the Campbell's Society in the United States in the 1960s. Not without humor, this late version in two-colored check pattern amplifies the codes of the original work of 1962, which fast-tracked Pop Art into a major artistic movement in the United States. By mixing creation with mass market, he upsets the ethics of Art, and in particular the Abstract Expressionism, by a provocative relation of the work to a primary consumerist notion. Exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the original work Campbell's Soup Can, is composed of thirty-two painted canvas some of which are owned by the trading company, achieving the perfect meeting of art and industry.
