Kaws

American graffiti-style subvertising artist

KAWS started his career working as a freelance animator for Disney and expressing himself as a Graffiti, he first explored subvertising art, focusing on the alteration of existing images (as advertisements) in a satirical manner.

Companion Vs Astroboy

White Frame Included

Companion Vs Astroboy is a signed screen print made by the renowned American artist and designer, KAWS in 2002. Coming in an edition size of 50 the print shows Companion, one of KAWS’ best-known cartoon characters, who is easily identifiable due to his skull and crossbone head and crossed out eyes. Companion is rendered straddling Astro Boy, a famous Japanese manga character. The two characters seem to be in a fight as Companion holds Astro Boy’s head in his arms. The position shows off his Mickey Mouse-style gloved hands, each with a cross on them, a signature element of KAWS’ visual language. The characters are both drawn in simple yet striking thin white lines and set against a black background. The print showcases KAWS’ excellent draughtsmanship and expertise in illustration.
