What if Andy Warhol had an Asian American upbringing? What would he have chosen to paint instead of the Campbell's soup can? He probably still would have chosen something simple; something that is an every day household item and recognized instantly my millions just by the shape and color. This would be my mission for a few days, to find that ultimate Asian American item.
Without further ado, I present to you my Asian American re-imagination of Andy Warhol:
"I am: Soy". Watercolor on canvas.
This is my first ever painting on canvas. I haven't painted since art class in elementary school, but I felt strongly inspired. I went to the art supply store, bought less than $20 worth of materials, experimented with the water colors and began to paint. This took maybe two hours of painting time; one evening if you factor in the time I had to wait for the water colors to dry so they didn't bleed/blend.
