Internationally-celebrated artist KAWS unveiled a colossal 42- metre artwork of his signature character, COMPANION, for KAWS: HOLIDAY SINGAPORE. Working with longtime collaborator AllRightsReserved and supported by Singapore Tourism Board, the artwork depicts the character in a reclined position embracing a miniature version of itself on The Float @ Marina Bay, set against Singapore’s stunning cityscape.
Following its exciting global tour in Seoul, Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, Outer Space, and the United Kingdom, this will be the seventh stop for KAWS’ HOLIDAY, as part of its goal to promote public appreciation of the arts. KAWS: HOLIDAY SINGAPORE is on display from today through 21 November 2021, opening from 2pm to 9pm daily.
