‘Addicted to You - Teal’ is a Giclée Print with Silkscreen varnish by contemporary artist Galzilla. From a limited edition of 50 the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Neither man nor monster, contemporary UK artist Galzilla - a self-professed “image eater” - works an insightful, twenty-first century social commentary into her eye-catching art. Exploring the cult of the consumer, Galzilla brings the themes of 1960s Pop-Art up-to-date, with an attention to pop culture, social media, and the internet, using collage techniques and pastiche styles to evoke the socio-political concerns of today.
In cute, illustrative style, ‘Addicted to You - Teal’ depicts a pill capsule, one half in a soft teal shade, the other left see-through to reveal a cluster of tiny, red, heart-shaped balloons, floating inside.
A clever commentary on the twenty-first century mediation of desire through consumables - not to mention an obsession with over-medicating - ‘Addicted to You - Teal’ is smart, sassy and striking. One thing is certain - we’re in love with this drug.
