KAWS (American, b. 1974)
From a sold-out edition of an unknown size.
A beautifully composed snowy-white KAWS COMPANION published to commemorate KAWS' larger-scale sculpture of the same at Changbai Mountain in Jilin Province, China. The piece features the signature KAWS Companion character sitting down with a miniature version of itself situated on its lap. A unique white KAWS color palette with a touching feel.
KAWS on his Changbai Holiday project: “This location in the Changbai Mountain is such an incredible environment and it’s an honor to have the opportunity to show my work here. I hope that people take some time to come together, break their usual routine of daily life, and have a meaningful experience with the sculpture and landscape.”
KAWS is a multifaceted artist straddling the worlds of art and design in his prolific body of work that ranges from paintings, murals and large-scale sculptures to product design and toy-making. His iconic “XX” signature has its roots in the beginning of his career as a street artist in the 1990s, when he began altering found advertisements by incorporating his own masterful paintings. Evoking the sensibilities of Pop artists like Andy Warhol and Claes Oldenburg, KAWS possesses a sophisticated humor and thoughtful interplay with consumer products and collaborations with global brands. He often draws inspiration and appropriates from popular culture animations to form a unique artistic vocabulary and influential cast of hybrid cartoon and human characters.
