Zeus: Love Is A Drug (Bart Simpson)

London artist Dean "Zeus" Coleman has been drawing inspiration from urban culture to create dynamic, experimental compositions fusing fine art, sculpture and graffiti, that reflects both his background on the streets and his formal training at the Chelsea College of Art.

For his latest exhibition at the Prescription art gallery in Brighton, Zeus unveiled a series of enlarged Ecstasy pills hand-moulded and cast from plaster. Each design was produced in an edition of 10 and comes framed and ready to hang on the wall.

Among the more common ecstasy pill symbols and icons used for the exhibition there is a reference to the Bart Simpson tablets, which are notoriously dangerous and pressed to resembled a popular brand of children's chewable vitamins.

The 'Love Is A Drug' Bart Simpson pill is still available via the Prescription online store, priced £150!
