After launching the "GONE" exhibit and the Sesame Street collection with Uniqlo earlier this month, KAWS shares a close-up look at a new companion figure captioned "CLEAN SLATE." As seen in the photo below, the figure is a small-scaled replica of the Hong Kong instillation seen as early as 2014.
The figure features a grey-scaled Companion carrying two smaller child-like Companions. This artwork is potentially a deep and personal one for the artist, as KAWS became a father around the time of the 2014 Hong Kong instillation. According to AllRightsReserved, the title for the “CLEAN SLATE” instillation referred to wiping out the past and starting over again, stepping into the next stage of life.
Stay tuned for additional information on prices, sizing, and release dates.
