Society’s relationship to consumption was something that Warhol addressed extensively in his art. With his Campbell’s Soup Cans (among many others), Warhol turned consumer items into works of art.
Warhol was also a deeply religious man—an aspect of the artist’s life that is often overlooked. As the son of Slovakian immigrants, Warhol was raised as a Catholic. Moreover, the commercial artist was also known to have volunteered regularly at homeless shelters."

"People sometimes say the way things happen in the movies is unreal, but actually, it's the way things happen to you in life that's unreal." ~ Andy Warhol
