First access to a special early work
Hello,
now available
KAWS
Companion vs Astroboy

I am pleased to offer you an early work by KAWS which rarely becomes available.

Published in a limited edition of only 50, the image features the Companion with the signature crossed eyes and Mickey Mouse-style gloves, and the popular Japanese manga character Astro Boy, all elements that became trademark signs of KAWS' visual language.

KAWS
KAWS

Beloved hero of the fashion and music industries, KAWS is one of a handful of artists to successfully bridge the gap between fine art and mass production. Starting his career as a background painter for Disney, his assured understanding of the commercial art world led to the release of the highly-collectable KAWS Companion figures in the late 1990s. Alongside his work on the streets, which often included customised bus shelter adverts, these enabled him to build a monumental cult following.
