Art and Hip Hop music have always been a big influence on each other. In this sculpture Takashi collaborated with hip hop artist Kanye West to create the bear for his album, college dropout. I like how it's not just a paint but a life size figure which we rarely see when it's a collaboration with hip hop. The aesthetics of the piece including the colors, shape and details are very coordinated. Lastly I love how you can detect the sad emotion that is being portray though the Bears eyes which plays along with the theme college dropout.
