Hajime Sorayama’s hyper-realistic illustrations of feminine androids are an integral part of the pop culture landscape of the 1980s and 90s, manifesting the provocative glamour and heightened excess of the era. Buffed to a chrome-like finish, the Special Edition 400% Sorayama BE@RBRICK ROYAL SELANGOR in satisfyingly weighty pewter reflects the Japanese artist’s signature style.
A cartoon-like bear in anthropomorphic form, MEDICOM TOY’s BE@RBRICK debuted in Tokyo in 2001. In the intervening years, the designer toy has acquired international cult status, in no small part due to its subsequent release in a range of materials, sizes and themes, and its collaborations with a slew of art, design & fashion heavyweights.
