Burton Morris Soda Cans

Burton Morris is a modern American Pop artist. His artwork creates a mood of happiness, high energy, and fun!  Comic books influenced his style of artwork. The triangular slashes that he is known to create with black around the outside edges of his art come from his love of woodblock prints. He includes popular cars, food, games, people & emotions in his easily recognizable style of art. He has been commissioned to create art for companies such as Sony, AT&T, Heinz & Microsoft.


Students designed their own Soda can, choosing a name and design. They used color pencils and markers to color it in. They created a burton Morris inspired background to glue their soda can onto, mimicking the triangular slashes found in all his work.
