In collaboration with Real Mad Hectic, and produced by Bounty Hunter, this piece depicts KAWS’s signature figure, Companion, in Black. This human/animal/cartoon hybrid has a Mickey Mouse body, complete with gloves, shorts, and clown-like shoes, much like the original character. To this borrowed, well-known image, KAWS adds his own now unmistakable imprints—an inflated skull and an "X" for each eyes. KAWS's characters are a reference to visual culture and demonstrate his wealth of creativity and impressive ability to appropriate world-famous pop culture icons, making them at once his own unique creation and also a stylistic tribute to society today.
