ANT835. The Sucklord (b. 1969) is an American fine artist and toy-maker. Through his brand Suckadelic, Sucklord peddles his functional action figure pieces, known for satirizing the art world and art market, as well as pop culture at large.
After starring in Season Two of Bravo’s Work of Art: The Next Great Artist, Suckadelic designed this set of toys as a tongue-in-cheek ode to these important figures of the contemporary art market, judges and hosts on Work of Art. The packaging, laid out to mimic the design of the television network Bravo on which the show aired, also pokes fun at the very concept of the show in which Sucklord participated, in the artist’s.
