The Sussex-based Strange Case Company has just added some terrific new artworks to their already fiercely fun collection of limited edition prints. The Soup Kitchen (Campbell’s Mock Soup Can Prints) are a twist on Warhol’s well-known pop art lithos of Campbell soup cans, each with an amusing double entendre.
Campbell’s Mock Soup Can Prints
Campbell’s soup cans containing faux soups named Primordial, Whoop Ass and Soylent Green are each available in three different styles, making it a pantry full of 9 possibilities you can mix and match.
Slipped, Crushed or Normal, each print is unique, hand embellished with gold, signed and embossed.
Printed on Radiant White Somerset 225gsm 100% cotton acid free mould made paper, each print measures 13″ x 19″ (329mm x 483mm) and costs $141.00 (£100.00).
The Strange Case Company showcases the collective work of BAFTA and RSA award winning designers Jamie Durrant and Wayne Coley. Established in 2009, they playfully blend striking imagery with counterintuitive juxtapositions and intricate, fine details. The company produces a range of unique prints that are available to buy via The Strange Case Company website and through select galleries.
Starting with an interest in mysterious objects and the stories – both imaginary and real – that can weave historical items together, Durrant originally launched The Strange Case Company to produce cabinets of curiosities filled with exotic collections of Victorian memorabilia. While these intriguing creations have proved to be highly sought after, however, the production process entails that only a small number can ever be produced. With Durrant being joined by Coley to help steer The Strange Case Company in new directions, the pair decided to distill the ethos of the cabinets into a series of two-dimensional artworks accessible to a wide audience.
