Collectors of Kaws merch, you might want to take note of this piece of news. The contemporary artist, whose real name is Brian Donnelly, is releasing a compendium of his work – titled Art Book, Contemporary Artist Series: Kaws – with publisher Phaidon for a limited time only from Sep 8 to 22.
The book is billed as “the definitive study” of the artist’s oeuvre which has seen him go from being a graffiti artist in the ’90s to becoming one of the most recognisable forces in contemporary art and culture – known for creating gargantuan public sculptures and collaborations with brands from Sacai to Uniqlo.
Among the highlight of Art Book, Contemporary Artist Series: Kaws are images of the artist’s studio and a selection of his previously unpublished preparatory drawings.
To mark the book’s launch, Uniqlo has announced that it will also retail the 160-page paperback ($79.90) in its stores and on its e-store during the same period. To accompany the release at Uniqlo, Kaws has designed a collection of limited-edition merchandise that features two of his most iconic characters: Companion and BFF. The items include unisex T-shirts and sweatshirts for both adults and children.
Only 15,000 pieces of this Kaws tote bag will be available worldwide for those who purchase Art Book, Contemporary Artist Series: Kaws at Uniqlo stores.
While the book is limited to one copy per customer, Uniqlo is sweetening the deal by giving shoppers an exclusive shoulder bag that features Companion taking a dip in the water. Ahead, a peek at what you can cop from this outing.
