kaws. companion. the standard. the high line.


this piece of public  art was shown in september and oktober 2011 outside the standard hotel. here’s some information i found on the high line website :

“… designer, painter, and sculptor KAWS is known for his iconic characters that appear as the subjects of paintings, vinyl toys, and larger-than-life sculptures. His sculpture, companion (passing through) recently found a new home on the plaza outside the Standard, new york. the towering character seems to be either hiding in shyness or inviting you to play hide-and-go-seek…”

i thought he looked like he was crying. or laughing really hard. i probably don’t understand art. loved it anyway.
