MAN-E-NEWS// “Pierced” vinyl figure from Parra x Kidrobot…

“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 joined forces with Kidrobot to produce “Pierced”, a 10″ tall vinyl sculpture that has no front or back, telling a different story from every angle! Using his signature post-Pop imagery and highly saturated colours with contrasting matte and gloss finishes, Parra depicts two figures “entwined and suspended in a dramatic dance of passion and pain”.

As you can see from the turnaround above, one angle portrays two lovers engaged in an intimate moment, whilst changing your view reveals a brutal display of empowerment as the fully dressed man pierces the naked lady’s flesh… a truly breathtaking piece! Produced in a limited run of just 300 pieces worldwide, Pierced will be available for $150, hitting Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers from June 7th…
