Sculptor Jonathon Paul combined pill capsules and high end fashion label logos for this edgy sculpture series called Designer Drugs.
Designer drugs are pills like MDMA, ketamine, GHB, Rohypnol, LSD (acid) and methamphetamine. According to Teens.drugabuse.gov, designer drugs are "created by changing the properties of a drug that comes from a plant—such as cocaine, morphine, or marijuana—using the tools of chemistry."
Taking the term to new literal heights, Paul decided to comment on the "high end" image of designer drugs by branding pills with labels like Yves St. Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Hermes.
The Designer Drugs sculptures are made of resin casted acrylic, colored and placed in typical pill packaging. What kind of buzz would you get off a few Louis?
