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 50 feet.

KAWS celebrating the 20th anniversary of his signature Companion figure by releasing a commemorative iteration. Aptly dubbed Companion 2020, the character has been designed to be displayed face down, fitting for the year that was.
