Andy Warhol Beige Campbell's Soup Skate Deck
In the early sixties, Andy Warhol created many works depicting consumer products, Hollywood stars, and a highly publicized series illustrating death and disaster in American society. As one of the most recognized faces in contemporary art, it seemed obvious for us to try and perpetuate Andy Warhol’s vision through our production. That’s why we recently collaborated with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts to produce a series of Andy’s most iconic works.

About the Artist:
Andy Warhol (; born Andrew Warhola Jr.; August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987) was the leading pioneer in pop art, working as an American artist, producer, and film maker. He was inspired by the advertising and celebrity culture of the 1960s, and explored its relation with artistic expression through medium such as painting, silkscreening, photography, film, and sculpture. Some of his best-known works include the silkscreen paintings Campbell's Soup Cans (1962) and Marilyn Diptych (1962), the experimental films Empire (1964) and Chelsea Girls (1966), and the multimedia events known as the Exploding Plastic Inevitable (1966–67).
