Jonathan Paul aka Desire Obtain Cherish
Everything You Know Is Wrong, time-based NFT, 2021
Gross Domestic Happiness Series

Working under the alias Desire Obtain Cherish (D.O.C.), Jonathan Paul emerged as a street artist in the early 2000s. Merging street, pop, conceptual, and appropriation art, D.O.C.’s cast resin sculptures are marked by a subversive edge, satirizing status symbols and revealing a commerce-driven social conscience.

Gross Domestic Happiness portrays an information meltdown of society. Adapted from a video installation in his “Horn Of Plenty” show in Los Angeles in 2019, his debut NFT's are an array of sayings, truisms, un-truisms, oxymorons, soothsayings, and aphorisms. The works draw on the text-based art traditions of Jenny Holzer, Ed Ruscha, and Christopher Wool
