For the first time ever, KAWS is bringing together Companion and BFF for a new large-scale sculpture.
To mark the May 2018 opening of the Wharf Group-developed Changsha International Finance Square complex in China, KAWS is unveiling a permanent sculpture in collaboration with curator AllRightsReserved featuring the two characters’ first joint appearance.
Celebrating the opening of Changsha IFS, KAWS’s Companion and BFF characters will be coming together for the first time ever for a new public art piece. Serving as a unique art experience in the commercial center, KAWS:SEEING/WATCHING depicts the characters intimately sitting back-to-back in the Sculpture Garden of the integrated flagship complex — overlooking the city and Xiang River. Additionally, KAWS:SEEING/WATCHING will launch with a KAWS collection pop-up at the Changsha IFS in May.
