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.

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. Some of his characters are his own creations while others are reworked versions of existing icons. His sculptures range in size from a few inches to ten meters tall, and are made from various materials including fiberglass, aluminum, wood, bronze, and a steel pontoon inflatable raft. He is well recognized internationally for his cross-market appeal and ability to blur lines between commercial and fine art, creating sculptures, acrylic paintings on canvas, and screen prints while also collaborating commercially, predominantly on limited edition toys, but also clothing, skateboard decks, and other collectibles.
