Plus: Add pop-art-you to our picture gallery, uploader is on
If you read my earlier story on the limited edition Campbell’s soup labels that are being sold at Target, you know I’m a Warhol fan. Because Warhol employed the use of silk screening as one of his go-to media, it was easy for him to replicate one image or photo multiple times in a row with color variations. What better way to get into the spirit of the 50th anniversary of Warhol’s 1962 famed work, 32 Campbell’s Soup Cans, than to emulate the master by making your own photo a Warhol-style graphic — and, yup, Campbell’s soup team has given up a souper app to do this on Facebook!
If you hop over to the Cambpell’s Soup facebook page and “Like” them, you can explore the art of soup, including taking a photo of yourself (or your favorite dog) and instantly turn it into a Warhol inspired graphic — without even adding water. According to Campbell’s:
15 Minutes of Fame in The Digital Age
Warhol is often quoted for his bold statement, “In the future, everybody will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” Campbell is giving people the opportunity to realize their own “15 Minutes of Fame” by transforming their photo on Facebook into a Warhol-inspired work of art to share with friends. A few lucky fans’ photos will be featured as the cover photo on the Campbell’s Condensed Facebook page.
My trusty sidekick, Leo and I (and Pam) have all already tested the ap. It seems to work best on photos that are fairly simple (like cropped portraits) that have high contrast. Why not get in on the action and celebrate this important anniversary by making your own Pop Art Portrait?
And how’s this: Uploader is ON. If you’re up for some fun, we’d love to see the photos you create in the Warhol-izer!
Upload your Warhol-you:
- (1) Visit http://artofsoup.com to make your Pop Art photo…
- (2) Save the photo to your computer.
- (3) Upload it to our picture gallery here.
- (4) Uploader DOES work but message you get on screen *may be* funky and confusing. Upload ONCE and trust the image it there — I just need to “set new photos free” from my control panel and will be checking throughout the weekend to do so.
