We love the ‘Designer Drugs’ series made by LA-based artist ‘Desire Obtain Cherish’ on UV Cast Resin (42 x 27).
DOC’s artwork rarely inspires moderate responses, an indication of his achievements’ importance. With DOC focusing on some of the most banal objects as models, his works avoid typical standards of “good taste” in art, and instead focus on the vulnerabilities of hierarchies and value systems. DOC’s work “reflects a darker, albeit more humorous slant on middle-class American values versus a spiritual or expressive essence of a highly individual artist.”
Since his first solo show at Lab Art street gallery in Los Angeles in 2011, Desire Obtain Cherish’s work has propelled with unusual fervor amid collectors and the public alike. Upcoming shows include two art fairs
slated for Basel this year, including Art Miami Booth E6, and UNIX Contemporary in the Wynwood Arts District.
