"Consider Desire Obtain Cherish. His body of work epitomizes the spirit of Street Art. His work explodes with subversive energy, dark humor, and a tenacious social conscience. Street Art personified. But these are also works of exquisite detail that reward observation."
"Take a close look at “Strawberry Blow Pop,” now on display at Lab Art’s new gallery [as well as Unix Fine Art in Miami] in the lobby of the Mondrian Hotel on Sunset Boulevard. The red surface of the sculpture has the unmistakable glisten of a candy shell, which melts seamlessly into the saccharine puddle that forms the sculpture’s base. It is both playful and precise, comic and beautiful, the product of a street artist in the studio. Desire Obtain Cherish elevates something as simple as a blow pop to the level of art, and encourages us to take pleasure in it, while at the same time hinting at how temporary such pleasure can be." - SlabArtBlog.com
And here's some of the work we helped manufacture that was featured in the show:
Blue Ice Meltdown Blowpop Sculpture & Pink Champagne Meltdown Blowpop Sculpture, both manufactured at the Pretty In Plastic Studio.
Although it's made of plastic, creating the Hersey's Cross - Dark Chocolate gave us some serious coco cravings!
