Born in: 1975

United States

Translation in progress

Desire Obtain Cherish (DOC) has become known as conceptual artist working across a wide variety of different media and a combination of styles. His controversial art work explores contemporary desires and obsessions with sex, gender, drugs, commerce, media and fame. Transporting controversial, satirical messages, Desire’s vibrantly colorful, entertaining and impeccably produced art exposes society’s inability to control itself and examines the commercial promise of fulfillment and happiness that ends in dependency. Meant to have an impact on its audience, DOC employs sarcasm to tackle and provoke society’s value system. Aiming to avoid the conventional, stereotypical standards of “good taste” in art, his ideas are more in line with contemporary commerce and marketing methods than traditional artisan methods. The esteemed New Yorker art critic Benjamin Genocchio characterized DOC’s work as “not malicious, even if his works cut to the bone. He is more like our social conscience, delivering up uncomfortable and unpleasant truths wrapped in the most beautiful and seductive of packages.” Born in 1975 in Salinas, California, DOC graduated from the nationally acclaimed Parson’s School of Design with a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts. Since his first solo show in Los Angeles (2011), he has been featured in numerous shows and artfairs as well as galleries worldwide, and his work has propelled with unusual fervor amid collectors and the public respectively. DOC lives and works in Los Angeles.
