: 11" x 4-1/2" x 2-3/4" (package: 14" x 7" x 4"). BRAND NEW in original blister packaging. The most recognizable figure in all of KAWS' work, the Companion has appeared in numerous iterations and mediums throughout the years.
After seeing a jump in demand, KAWS released a full series of six different Companions that included both full-body and flayed versions of the classic character. The collection dropped in November of 2016 in conjunction with his " Where The End Starts " exhibit in Fort Worth, TX. The figures were released through KAWSONE, MoMA, and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (MAMFW) and stand at 11 inches tall. This KAWS Open Edition Flayed Companion in Brown features an open-body design with various shades of brown and beige on both the interior and outside, and comes sealed in clear blister packaging.KAWS is one of the most celebrated street-influenced artists working today. He is best known for his cartoon-style characters and images, which he has evolved from paintings to toys and clothing. Through all of his projects, KAWS has successfully blurred the line between fine art and mass-produced merchandise.
He uses his products to allow his imagery to infiltrate a larger audience than that of the fine art world. The artist is currently an active member in both the commercial and fine art communities. Brian Donnelly, known professionally as Kaws (stylized as KAWS), is an American artist and designer.His work includes repeated use of a cast of figurative characters and motifs, some dating back to the beginning of his career in the 1990s, initially painted in 2D and later realized in 3D. Some of his characters are his own creations while others are reworked versions of existing icons. Kaws' sculptures range in size from a few inches to ten metres tall, and are made from various materials including fiberglass, aluminium, wood, bronze, and a steel pontoon inflatable raft. His work is exhibited in galleries and museums, held in the permanent collections of public institutions, and avidly collected by individuals including music producer Swizz Beatz, internet sensation PewDiePie, rapper Pharrell Williams, and members of South Korean boy band BTS. A number of books illustrating his work have been published. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, creating sculptures, acrylic paintings on canvas, and screenprints while also collaborating commercially, predominantly on limited edition toys, but also clothing, skate decks, and other products. 2021' KAWS: WHAT PARTY', Brooklyn Museum, New York, NY (2/12 - 9/5). 2019' KAWS: HE EATS ALONE', Qatar Museum, Doha, Qatar' KAWS: BLACKOUT', Skarstedt Gallery, London, UK' KAWS: Companionship in the Age of Loneliness', National Gallery of Victoria (NGV), Melbourne, Australia' KAWS: ALONE AGAIN', Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), Detroit, MI' KAWS: HOLIDAY', Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, Taipei, Taiwan. 2018' KAWS: GONE', Skarstedt Gallery, New York, NY' KAWS: HOLIDAY', Seokchon Lake, Seoul, South Korea' KAWS', Galerie Perrotin, Tokyo, Japan' KAWS', Galerie Perrotin, Hong Kong. 2017' KAWS: Where the End Starts', Yuz Museum, Shanghai, China.
