About Holiday Japan Cushion - Kaws - Grey
After releasing his final collaborative apparel collection with Uniqlo's UT line in June of 2019, KAWS returned just over one month later for the Japan installment of his KAWS Holiday series. The event and collection took to the theme of Mt. Fuji, staging campsites in Japan and releasing an array of Holiday and Mt. Fuji inspired collectibles. Released as a part of the event was this KAWS Holiday Japan Cushion, which depicts a companion laying on the ground in front of Mount Fuji.
KAWS is a multi-faceted artist straddling the worlds of art and design in his prolific body of work that ranges from paintings, murals, and large-scale sculptures to product design and toy-making. His iconic “XX” signature has its roots in the beginning of his career as a street artist in the 1990s, when he began altering found advertisements by incorporating his own masterful paintings. Evoking the sensibilities of Pop artists like Andy Warhol and Claes Oldenburg, KAWS possesses a sophisticated humor and thoughtful interplay with consumer products and collaborations with global brands. He often draws inspiration and appropriates from popular culture animations to form a unique artistic vocabulary and influential cast of hybrid cartoon and human characters.
