“My drink is based on the pop art movement. Artists decided to change the way they painted because what they were taught was not what was seen in everyday life; it focused on commercial and comic-like styles. 

One of the biggest creators of pop art was Andy Warhol. He is famous for exploring popular culture in his work – anything from Coca-Cola to pop stars to clothes.

He made a print of Campbell’s Soup – a popular brand of soup in the United States. He said he ate Campbell’s tomato soup every day for lunch for 20 years! And as it is one of my favourite art pieces because of my love of soup I took inspiration from these paintings and this movement.

The name of the drink is “15 minutes” – Andy Warhol was the man to quote how in the future everyone will have 15 minutes of fame.”
