Parra x Kidrobot vinyl toy, by sand on May 18, 2012 21:11:09 GMT 1, As he pierces her with brutal force.
Inspired by the melodramatic cover art of romance novels and based on his original silkscreen artwork, Dutch artist Parra has crafted Pierced, a 10-inch tall vinyl sculpture that has no front or back, telling its story in the round. Using his signature post-Pop imagery and highly saturated colors with contrasting matte and gloss finishes, Parra depicts two figures entwined and suspended in a dramatic dance of passion and pain, revealing multiple levels of love.
From one angle, the scene is an ecstatic and intimate moment between lovers. A fiery embrace. Change your view, and a brutal display of empowerment is revealed. A clothed man impales a nude woman’s neck.
Produced as a limited edition of 300 with artist’s signature engraved on the bottom, Pierced becomes available for $150 US beginning June 7 at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers worldwide.
