Kidult Unveils Sculpture and Address to His 48 Hour Tokyo Show

Titled “Visual Rape.”

On the subject of consumerism, Kidult does little to hold back when sharing a piece of his mind, defacing high-end luxury stores to streetwear’s most revered retailers. Whether you applaud his work — like Kanye did — or find it absurd, there’s no denying the graffiti artist’s vandalism career to have an impact on street culture. Kidult’s recent work unveiled a slightly disturbing clip teasing his upcoming ephemeral show in Tokyo. The clip rounds out with a miniaturized sculpture of Chanel’s tagged store in flames, a mock-up that’ll release in light of his forthcoming outing on August 27. Signed and numbered by hand, the black sculpture is limited to 50 pieces and will only be available at the Tokyo launch and the white version is limited to 200 pieces and will be available worldwide on August 27 from Kidult’s webpage. The “Visual Rape” 48-hour show will be open to the public at the address provided below.
