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.
With WHAT PARTY, KAWS brings back his beloved Michelin Man-inspired character called CHUM for the series that arrives in black, white, pink, orange and yellow variants. The collectible takes its name from KAWS’ major survey to launch at the Brooklyn Museum in February 2021.
