Fashionable Pill Sculptures
Jonathan Paul 'Designer Drugs' Mixes Fashion and Drug Culture

{SummaryTitle}

The Jonathan Paul Designer Drugs exhibit is a masterful commentary on the growing underground designer drugs industry. Designer drugs are alternatives to illegal or prescription drugs that have yet to be addressed by legislation. An example would be ‘bath salts,’ the drug that has been loosely linked to people eating other peoples’ faces last summer.

Jonathan Paul, who also goes by Desire Obtain Cherish, mixes together the worlds of high fashion and designer drugs to create a series of resin casted acrylic sculptures. Hermes, Louis Vuitton and Yves Saint Laurent all get the pharmacological treatment.

I think that Paul’s work comments on how fashion and consumerism can be like a drug, or how people use drugs as readily as they change their clothes each day. Whatever the meaning, the exhibit makes you think, and that is the mark of all great art.
