This print is a mash up of Warhol’s Soup Can paintings and Artist's Shit (Italian: Merda d'artista) a 1961 artwork by the Italian artist Piero Manzoni. The work consists of 90 tin cans, each reportedly filled with 30 grams (1.1 oz) of faeces, and measuring 4.8 by 6.5 centimetres (1.9 in × 2.6 in), with a label in Italian, English, French, and German stating:

Artist's Shit

Contents 30 gr net

Freshly preserved

Produced and tinned in May 1961

 

Enrico Baj, has said that the cans were meant as "an act of defiant mockery of the art world, artists, and art criticism". Artist's Shit has been interpreted in relation to Karl Marx's idea of commodity fetishism, and Marcel Duchamp's readymades.
