This beautiful and rare KAWS piece features his Ad Intervention style with a Pink Bendy wrapping itself around the billboard model. The Pink Bendy is printed onto the glossy surface as a separate layer, with a matte finish, giving it nice contrast. Once framed, it displays very nicely.

It was designed for the Towa Tei Sweet Robots Against the Machine Remix EP, a rare Japan-only record release, and includes the original vinyl record and hard plastic sleeve. A very collectible piece.

About KAWS

“KAWS” is a graffiti artist, illustrator, painter, sculptor, product designer, and toymaker. His cartoonish style—including his best-known characters with X-ed out eyes—has its roots in his early career as a street artist, when he began replacing advertisements with his own, masterful acrylic paintings in the early 1990s. Since, KAWS has embraced the commercialist spirit of Claes Oldenburg and Takashi Murakami, designing everything from Kanye West album covers to Nike sneakers. Avoiding the distinction between products and art objects, KAWS has shown his work increasingly in galleries and museums over the past decade; some of his most famous images are reimagined versions of pop characters like Mickey Mouse and the Michelin Man.

American, b. 1974, Jersey City, New Jersey, based in Brooklyn, New York
