Mondrian according to DOC
New York! One of the first must see exhibits of the year is finally upon us! Street artist and musician turned gallery artist Desire Obtain Cherish has just opened his first solo show in New York and you will not want to miss it. Entitled “We Are Known by the Company We Keep” at Unix Gallery, the show is brilliant in every way. Desire Obtain Cherish explores the phoniness of the art world (hence the title of the exhibit) with his take on mega-famous artists, critics and consumerism. All the works in the show will make you smile and probably throw up in your mouth a little when you take a deeper look at his works and the bold statement he is making about the world we live in.
Desire Obtain Cherish
I strongly urge you to check out this show and if you are not in the New York area, check out DOC’s official website and I am sure you will agree that every work he does is absolutely genius!
DOC in front of a tribute to Damien Hirst
Desire Obtain Cherish agreed to be photographed at the opening night reception and interestingly enough, the lighting sort of shaded his face, thus keeping up his street artist anonymity. In the photo below, you can take a sneak peak of a live installation of his take on artists that use factories to produce “their own” art.
Desire Obtain Cherish
“We Are Known By The Company We Keep” by Desire Obtain Cherish is on display at UNIX (located at 532 West 24th Street) in New York through May 6, 2014. Do not miss this!

If you like pop art, Damien Hirst, Damien Hirst’s spot paintings, or Andy Warhol, Whitney Houston, Judy Garland, Ian Curtis of Joy Division, Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix or Truman Capote and you live in New York, you should head over to Jim Kempner Fine Art in Chelsea to see John Grande’s exhibit “Oh You Pretty Things,” which superimpose Damien Hirst’s spot paintings over these icons.

Now you can connect Jared Leto to Damien Hirst when you are playing the 6 degrees of separation game has Hirst has lent one of his spot paintings for the cover of the new Thirty Seconds to Mars album. In other news, I am seeing Laura Mvula (pictured on the far left) in a few weeks and I am excited!

Hirst Personl Taste
So Damien Hirst is street art. And then someone revised it. And then someone revised the revisions. Doing the calculations, this wall is worth approximately 84,000,000 GBP. Will that be cash or charge?
