New York City-based artist Stickymonger has returned with a brand new artwork made in collaboration with editions purveyor, Avant Arte. Her work, Obsession, No Joke, explores human obsessions.
The limited edition print portrays one of the artist’s recognizable female subjects inside what appears to be a grocery store as she’s surrounded by commercial products such as Japanese Milky candies. The work is based on an original painting of the same name.
“Just as I like to be surrounded by my obsessions, I like to paint girls with their obsessions,” Stickymonger said in a statement. “Stickymonger explores fear and desire in her cute but creepy illustrations that share snippets from her own internal cinema,” added Avant Arte.
The prints measure 75 by 61 centimeters and arrive in an edition of 75 with each piece signed, dated and numbered by Stickymonger. The work is an eight-color screen print on Somerset Velvet White 300 gsm paper and retails for €700 (approx. $848). Purchase a print now on Avant Arte’s website.
