A homage and remix of Banksy and Andy Warhol, of which both appropriated common brand soup cans in their art. By combining the two, it alludes to the frequent comparison that Banksy is the new Warhol. Both created styles that were made to be simple and easy to digest. Focus was also placed on techniques that reproduced their art as quickly and efficiently as possible. Banksy with stenciling and Warhol with screen printing.

The bright and fresh new Tesco Soup Can is juxtaposed by the old Campbell's Soup label, metaphorically shedding it away. But not completely, the Tesco can is still able to stay a bit hidden. While Warhol was obsessed with fame, Banksy is notoriously private.
