Tea Bag

This piece by Claes Oldenburg caught my eye, its a mixed media  screenprint piece. I really like the composition of the piece as a whole and how each individual shape is placed to draw the eyes to it. This artist also has various other pieces just like this but in different shades to depict various kinds of tea.
