KAWS Companion – Limited Edition KAWS Artwork
KAWS work has always been sleek and playful, his brushwork perfect. The images he uses seem familiar, but he shapes, paints, positions and transforms them in ways that give them new emotional content. There is something so relatable about KAWS’ work, that his art has become sought after in galleries museums around the world and by artists and musicians like Kanye West and John Mayer.
One of KAWS most recognizable creations is Companion, a cartoon, mouse-like figure with KAWS’ signature Xs, posed with its hands shyly covering its eyes. KAWS has painted, drawn and sculpted many version of Companion. In 2012, he was asked to create a Companion float for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
