Description: In the mid 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 "Clocks" the elegant product shot is accompanied by a questionnaire on heroin use. (Please note: the large title does not appear on the artwork. Click here for a larger image.) Having seen this series of work, it's hard to view a slick ad with a straight face. This print is from an edition of only 3. Buyer pays shipping and insurance.

*The AutoBid feature is an optional feature which allows you to place a blanket bid on an item. This way you do not have to be present to raise your bid to the next acceptable bid level should someone else outbid you. If someone outbids you, the AutoBid acts as your agent and raises your bid to the next acceptable winning bid. This will continue until your AutoBid limit is reached. In the event of ties, the AutoBid is the winning bid.
