American contemporary artist Brian Donnelly, known professionally as KAWS is back again debuting new work worth befriending. KAWS is premiering a large eight-meter-tall sculpture in Bangkok, Thailand on June 30, along with a full range of product line. In collaboration with Bangkok’s most prominent crossroads, Central Embassy, whereas the location is ideally placed as the sole retail development within one of the city’s busiest areas. The sculpture, which named “BFF” is designed to evoke the close and lasting friendships of our youth and features a furrier and cuter aesthetic than we’ve seen previously from the New York-based artist.
To mark the occasion, KAWS has also teamed up with Hong Kong creative agency AllRightsReserved to release a limited-edition collection of toys, apparel and accessories. The highlight will undoubtedly be the 20” BFF replica plush toy, which sits alongside a T-shirt, tote bag, umbrella, and a towel. All which feature KAWS and BFF branding.
