On January 19, KAWS unveiled an outdoor project in Taipei, Taiwan featuring his largest companion sculpture to date.
Titled “KAWS:HOLIDAY,” the project has been created in collaboration with AllRightsReserved and is dominated by a 36-meter long seated companion. Previously, a leaked image of the giant companion was shared by the artist on Instagram (albeit with apparent reluctance).
A previous, 28-meter version of the “KAWS:HOLIDAY” project took place in Seoul, South Korea.
The sculpture is accompanied by a range of limited edition collectible KAWS products, including three miniature companion varieties of the giant sculpture, a set of four ceramic plates, five T-shirts, and three tote bags.
“KAWS:HOLIDAY” will be on view at Chaing Kai-shek Memorial Hall from January 19 to January 27, with the merch on sale online from January 19.
