"Coca-Cola (in Green)" (2006) is an iconic color lithograph by famous Chinese Contemporary artist Wang Guangyi, and is one of his most sought-after images. This print is in mint condition and has never been framed.

Wang Guangyi's aesthetic entails combining propaganda images and photographs from Communist China - and fusing them with Western commercial brands and logos, here directly referencing the soda Pepsi. His most acclaimed series of paintings and prints, including "Pepsi", belong to his 'Great Criticism' series of paintings and prints, that have earned him international fame and a world-wide collectors base. On a surface level, his work intentionally imitates Andy Warhol's Pop Art works, but their content is a more complex commentary on socialism and consumerism. Wang Guangyi is one of the most important 'Political Neo-Pop' artists and a founder of the Chinese Avant-Garde movement in China.
