Inspired by the incredibly successful romance novel '50 shades of Grey,' artist Parra has released his own version of steamy and complex romance entitled 'Pierce.'

The 10-inch vinyl sculpture depicts a couple in a deep and passionate embrace. The two characters are crafted in the iconic style the artist is so well known for. What is particularly interesting about this sculpture is despite the fact that they are cartoonized and doll-like figures, they are still able to reveal a deep sense of love and the complications and contradictions that love provides. This idea also goes along with why this art piece is intended to be seen from all angles as one viewpoint displays an ecstatic and intimate moment, while another view portrays a much more brutal display of power and control.

Artist Parra successfully evokes this intense feeling while paying homage to an extremely successful romance novel franchise.
