American artist Brian Donnelly, known as KAWS, began his career adding his graffiti to fashion advertising on NYC bus shelters and phone booths in the 1990s. He has gone on to create a large body of work including paintings and sculpture and collaborations with toy and apparel firms. The Companion figure is a clown-like figure based on Mickey Mouse and to date has been executed in sizes from 5 inches to 115 feet. Like Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker, 1903, COMPANION (PASSING THROUGH) reflects a modern-day human condition – sadness, fatigue, and the feeling of being overwhelmed.
