MEDICOM TOY, BE@RBRICK Keith Haring #4 1000%.
Fourth Keith Haring BE@RBICK by Medicom Toy. This time, the Japanese toymaker has emblazoned the figure with visuals modeled afters Haring’s untitled artworks. Glossed with a slew of bending lines and curved stick figures, the graphics cover every inch of the figure. Other motifs like bold “X” marks, zig-zags and squiggly shapes are reminiscent of the artists’s signature style that overtook New York’s street art in the 1980s. As a final touch, crisp white indents at the toes have been applied to offset the busy patterns, while providing a sense of depth.
Founded in 1996, MEDICOM TOY is a Japanese toy brand that specialises in creating collectable toys and superheroes. MEDICOM TOY aimed to create collectable pieces of art rather, thus their products are sold in limited quantities. Their most popular line of toys is the BE@RBRICK series and the name is derived from the fact that the figure is a cartoon-style representation of a bear. Each figure features nine parts (widely referred to as tools in the toy industry): head, torso, hips, arms, hands, and legs. These nine tools allow eight points of articulation. MediCom Toy (BE@RBRICK ), counts a long list of collaborations, including Star Wars, Undercover, Disney, Chanel, Supreme, Fendi and much more.
