“21st Century Warhol” : PLASTICGOD

By futra / January, 2, 2012 / 0 comments

“Working under the pseudonym Plasticgod, internationally known Los Angeles artist Doug Murphy has established himself as a relentless pop culture manipulator and multiples revivalist. The clean, minimalist forms of LEGO-like heads and figures become a mold in which Plasticgod forces the faces and bodies of an ever expanding pantheon of pop icons. Making works that drip with saccharine colors and simple shapes that reduce the famous and infamous to their most basic visual identifiers, his fixation surges forth with a relentless mercantile fury, reflective of his chosen subjects” – Marshall Astor Walled City Gallery
