“As he pierces her with brutal force” is no understatement with Dutch artist Parra’s depiction of a harsh necking in his first collaboration with pop art brand Kidrobot. The 10-inch vinyl sculpture is a dramatization of eroticism and dominance, with beaked creatures pecking away at each other in a menagerie gloss and matte. The forceful embrace is an ode to romance novel covers that even Fabio might be turned on by depending on what angle he views it from.
