Description: In the early 1990's Pop/Conceptual artist GH HOVAGIMYAN took a hard look at the intentions of print advertising. Designers like Gucci, Cartier and Fendi presented their goods with the reverence of a religious relic. In his "Drug of Choice" series, Hovagimyan, compares these objects of desire with other known addictive substances. In "Handbags" the product shot is accompanied by a questionnaire on needle use by addicts. (Please note: the large title does not appear on the artwork.)Having seen this series of work, advertising takes on an entirely new meaning. This print is from an edition of only 3. Buyer pays shipping and insurance.
