“I have never been more excited about a series of paintings than these Coca-Cola bottles created by Burton Morris.” – Rick Rounick, owner of Soho Contemporary Art
NEW YORK, NY, October 20, 2015 – Pop artist Burton Morris is one of the most recognizable names in the world of pop culture. His iconic artworks have graced galleries and museums worldwide. From signature artworks for the Academy Awards, The Summer Olympic Games, FIFA World Cup Soccer to The United Nations and The White House, Burton’s signature energetic pop art style has been ingrained in our culture for over the last 25 years.
His most recent series of 100 unique Coca-Cola inspired paintings, in honor of the 100 year celebration of the iconic Coca-Cola bottle, will debut at a VIP reception on November 19, 2015 from 7-9:00 pm, at the Soho Contemporary Art gallery in New York City.
Homage to Andy Warhol
“In homage to the late Pop Artist Andy Warhol,” Burton states, “who 30 years ago debuted his classic series of 100 Campbell’s Soup Box paintings, I too was inspired by a different brand cemented in pop culture. Coca-Cola is one of the staples of our time. To me it represents family dinners, nights out with friends, and classic Americana. In this series of 100 artworks, I challenged myself by experimenting outside of my typical clean line style, working with spray paint, screen printing, and acrylic paint. This resulted in 100 different mixed media paintings on canvas, highlighting the classic Coca-Cola colors of red, silver, black, and white. I stylized the classic Coca-Cola bottle along with my signature energy shards, and highlighted the bottle in a unique way on each canvas,” says Morris.
