Kidrobot celebrates the enduring art and legacy of Jean-Michel Basquiat with a new Masterpiece 8″ Dunny featuring the work of the late NYC artist. The new Pez Dispenser edition features Basquiat’s iconic image of a dinosaur depicted with the artist’s noted crown. The rear of the white Dunny features the artist’s printed signature along with the end of the dinosaur’s tail which curves around from the front. Rather than celebrating the popular candy, Pez Dispenser is an expression of Basquiat’s critique of society, inequality and the pervasive consumerism which transforms culture into a sales opportunity.
The Jean-Michel Basquiat Pez Dispenser Masterpiece 8″ Dunny will be available on Friday (5.22) from select retailers including myplasticheart and BAIT as well as directly from Kidrobot (9AM PDT) for $150.
