Eco-activists from a new campaign group calling themselves Stop Fossil Fuel Subsidies (StopFFS) vandalized Andy Warhol’s famous ‘Campbell’s Soup I’ at Australia’s National Gallery in Canberra on Tuesday. The incident is the latest action in a recent trend that has seen climate change protesters targeting famous artwork in Europe and beyond. 

“Andy Warhol depicted consumerism gone mad in this iconic series. And now we have capitalism gone mad,”one of the activists, Bonnie Cassen, said after gluing her hand to the pop art masterpiece. The painting is protected by a glass frame and was thus not damaged.

According to the protester, described by StopFFS as “a mother of three and battling incurable cancer,” families are forced to choose between medicine and food for their children “while fossil fuel companies return record profits.”

“And yet our government gives $22,000 a minute in subsidies to the fossil fuel industry,” Cassen claimed.

Andy Warhol's nephew will put two works by his late pop artist uncle on the market for the first time Tuesday in New York, with both expected to sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction. The two paintings were created when Warhol, the son of a working-class family of Eastern European immigrants, was a 20-year-old art student in his native Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The self-portrait "Nosepicker 1: Why Pick on Me" and "Living Room," both from 1948, will be auctioned off Tuesday evening at New York's Phillips.
