We’ve heard rumors of a wooden Companion figure from KAWS for a while now but haven’t seen any images… until now – from the recent Dos Sequis video! In these studio shots, the figure appears to be approximately 10 inches tall, but no word yet on general release details. We guess that KAWS fanatics, who have already been waiting for the Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket figures to drop, will be adding this to their want list although this is sure to be limited and expensive.

You may remember when we first passed along the news that KAWS was collaborating with Dos Equis in creating a specially packaged version of their popular beer. Now, the Mexican company, whose name translates to “two x’s” has released a promotional video of the “creative process” from the street turned contemporary artist whose signature imagery also includes “two x’s”.

If you remember, AM recently brought you a first look at the KAWS museum show at The Aldrich as well as a peek at the upcoming Pinnochio and Jiminy Cricket figures. Apparently, High Snobiety also made the trek out to Connecticut and put together a nice video capturing footage of the paintings, installations, drawings, sculptural work, and art products that were part of the massive retrospective.

It looks like Lindsay Lohan might be doing some jail time soon in the near future, but she did find time to do a photoshoot with Complex that is sure to be the fantasy of some art collectors out there. The troubled celebrity poses with plenty of KAWS graphics as well as with his 4 foot companion and will be the cover of the new issue of the magazine. Take a look at the behind the scenes video after the jump as well as a […]
Dos Equis, the beer company whose claim to fame are their entertaining “most interesting man in the world” commercials, have apparently commissioned KAWS (who recently opened his museum show in Connecticut) to design a special limited edition bottle. The translation “Dos Equis” is literally “two x’s”, so it seems like a perfect match for the NY street turned contemporary artist’s iconic imagery. No full details have been released yet but these bottles look to be released only for our friends south of the border. Discuss […]
Yesterday, we gave you a detailed look at KAWS’ first ever museum exhibition at the The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. Simply mind boggling right? With the amount of great artwork and stunning installations, we almost missed this lone prototype vinyl figure encased on a simple pedestal. Upon closer inspection we noticed it was Pinocchio reworked in a style that only KAWS could do. Next to it was a museum info card: “Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket, 2010 – Produced by Medicom Toy, Copyright Disney”. The million dollar […]
Yesterday, AM attended the exhibition opening of Brooklyn-based artist and designer Brian Donnelly, a.k.a KAWS, at the The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT. The first ever solo museum exhibition for the famed urban contemporary artist was nothing short of inspiring. Mixing one part retrospective and one part fresh works created a dynamic survey of a career that has influenced a range of design and popular culture. From his humble street/graffiti origins to graphic/vinyl design work to his current relevance in the world of […]
Here’s a quick sampling of what fans of Brooklyn-based contemporary artist, KAWS, will have in store for themselves tomorrow night during the opening of his first museum exhibition at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. Bringing his own brand of street inspired pop art to such an elevated stage is no doubt a crowning achievement for an artist who initially made his way bombing billboards and beautifying phonebooths and bus-stops in and around NYC. With more attention deservedly being paid to the artist as a result […]
With an exhibition at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum right around the corner (teased), we get an in-depth look into the quiet world of KAWS through an exclusive interview with Spiderman himself (Tobey Maguire) on Interview Magazine’s website. In the candid exchange, KAWS talks about his unique background, devoted collectors, and artistic influences. Check it out the entire interview here. Via Hypebeast Discuss KAWS here.
Celebrated street turned contemporary artist, KAWS, will be opening his first solo museum exhibition next month at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. The show will include “his most recent paintings, sculptures, and drawings, as well as a survey of apparel, product and graphic designs, and limited-edition toys.” We can’t wait to see the whole setup, but we imagine it will be similar to what our friend Pirovino has in his collection (well, at least the 4 Foot KAWS figures).
