SSUR x MEDICOM Bearbrick 400%

By - January 13th, 2011

Some BE@RBRICK collaboration rely on name recognition, and not every artist’s style or work translates well to the vinyl toy medium. But the artistic style of Ruslan Karablin – aka SSUR – works perfectly for this 400% BE@RBRICK figure. The Odessa, Ukraine born Karablin has been creating art projects and products since 1990, when he launched his first line of T-Shirts. While long based in New York, the designer retains a strong sense of classic Eastern European art, imagined through his 100% New York eyes. His signature style evokes Delft pottery and 18th and 19th century Russian pottery, updated with an undeniable street art perspective. The Be@rbrick he designed for MEDICOM TOY is a classic SSUR design: white base, overlaid with his blue penwork and tattoo-inspired imagery and gold accents. The piece come in a fully decorated collectors box too. Check out the images after the jump. This is a definite hit for any BE@RBRICK fans from Brighton Beach. Available now at Caliroots.
