Medicom Toy announced over the weekend that they will be collaborating with the late Jean-Michel Basquiat for their next series of Be@bricks! Known for his abstract style and reach across music and pop culture, Basquiat’s art work will be reproduced by Medicom Toy in the form of 100%, 400%, and 1000% scaled Be@rbricks.
Each Be@rbrick will showcase Basquiat's abstract themes on front and back while featuring different and unique artwork on the three Be@rbrick scales. The sizes measure as following:
- 100% Be@rbrick (2.75" inches | 7cm tall)
- 400% Be@rbrick (11" inches | 28cm tall)
- 1000% Be@rbrick (27.5” inches | 70cm tall)
Medicom Toy will release the 100% and 400% as a set, and the 1000% separately.
Basquiat's artwork has made it’s way into the Be@brick line before but unnoticeable to most. As seen on the numerous releases of the Unkle Be@rbrick, the iconic ‘Basquiat’s Crowns’ has been featured and inspired by band member James Lavelle’s actual tattoo.
Just as any artist themed Be@rbrick, collector's should anticipate that this piece will have a very limited production run and will sell out very quickly. Pre-Orders are available now and locks you in for the special pre-order price.
