1. KAWS, Untitled (Color), Estimate €120,000–180,000
Before turning into the acclaimed street artist he is today, KAWS worked for some time as an illustrator and animator.
Untitled (Color) reflects his masterful ability to combine neon colours in addition to the portrait of a cartoon-like character, whose X’ed-out eyes have become the artist’s notorious signature. Not only is Untitled (Color) an iconic work by KAWS but it is first and foremost the very explanation for today’s mass fascination with Brian Donnelly’s work.
2. KAWS & Robert Lazzarini, Distorted Companion, Estimate €1,000–1,500
The collaboration between KAWS and Robert Lazzarini is the fruit of the encounter of two plastic artists with a very specific vision of the world.
Distorted Companion is an artwork at the crossroads of KAWS’ cartoonish world and Lazzarini’s willingness to distort familiar objects.
3. KAWS, Resting place (Black), Estimate €1,000–1,500
Resting place is one of the last copies manufactured by OriginalFake, the company created by KAWS jointly with Medicom.
This Companion, which ranks amongst the rarest editions produced, partly unveils what lies beneath the fiber glass of these now emblematic sculptures.
