“Pierced” Vinyl Sculpture by Parra

Kidrobot - “Pierced” Vinyl Sculpture by Parra

Inspired by the melodramatic cover art of romance novels and based on his original silkscreen artwork, Dutch artist Parra (store) has crafted “Pierced,” a 10” tall vinyl sculpture that has no front or back, telling its story in the round. The Blot complains pretty regularly that Kidrobot is not doing enough to push the designer art toy scene forward. So I have to give KR its due when they release a beautiful piece like Pierced. The Blot loves Parra’s pop art and this vinyl statue looks (at least from the pictures) pretty incredible!

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. Change your view, and a brutal display of empowerment is revealed. A clothed man impales a nude woman’s neck.

The Pierced vinyl sculpture by Parra has a limited edition run size of 300 pieces and will retail for $150 each beginning June 7th at all Kidrobot stores,, and select retailers worldwide.
