Willson Hennesy's color contrasting artwork is extremely minimalistic and modern. Referencing pop culture icons such as Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup, Hennesy creates yet another piece of artwork that emphasizes the importance of color.

Marlboro, Campbell's Soup and a milkshake glass are the forefront subjects with perfectly fitting geometrical backgrounds. The artist disguises the subject by using the exact same tone of color that is partly of the objects.

This artwork is a perfect demonstration of the power of color and tone. The battle of subject matter and complexion is clearly won by the latter within the composition, making the subject insignificant through disguise. William Hennesy's portfolio is filled with a mix of minimalist and detailed pieces. This being a perfect example, his minimalist work makes one take a second glance.
