This past Monday, KAWS went on Instagram to tease a new Companion figure that is essentially a smaller-scaled version of his large-scale CLEAN SLATE sculpture currently on display at Phillips’ Plaza in New York City. Although an official release is currently in speculation, the Brooklyn-based artist shared another post this Tuesday, showcasing the figure and its graphics-adorned packaging during a studio visit with A$AP Ferg and pop expressionist painter, Jay West.
The collectible features a Companion carrying two smaller Companions in KAWS’ signature grey tones. If you’ve seen these figures pop up before — perhaps as early as 2014 — you may have mistaken them as official releases when they are unfortunately fake copies. Stay tuned for updates such as edition size and pricing.
