Andy Warhol had a knack for turning unmistakably mundane items like soup cans and Coca-Cola bottles into pop art icons. But there is perhaps no other reappropriated grocery item better than Mr. Warhol's beloved banana.
To celebrate the banana -- and what would have been Andy Warhol's 85th birthday -- a group of 22 contemporary artists gathered to put their best spin on the slender yellow fruit. From Frank Correa to Izzie Klingels, the selected artists and designers paid tribute with plenty of appearances by Andy, Edie, Bananas in Pyjamas, naked women and other psychedelic imaginings.
Commissioned by Société Perrier (the organization that made their very own Andy Warhol water bottle), it's a delightful homage to the pop art king. We're certain he would have been tickled to see the object receive more than its fair share of 15 minutes of fame.
