After its previous succesfull stops that include Hong Kong and Virginia Beach, KAWS:HOLIDAY are flying to the United Kingdom, which is the sixth stop of the huge “COMPANION” Air Balloon, that KAWS and the Hong Kong based creative agency AllRightsReserved, is exhibiting around the world.
I am happy to be able to continue working on exciting projects such as KAWS: HOLIDAY and hope this can bring inspiration to our current global situation.– KAWS
This time it is a gigantic 42-meter-high hot air balloon (one of the largest in the world), with the usual KAWS COMPANION, in gray that is covering its face with its hands. The first flight took place in Bristol, and although the KAWS: HOLIDAY Hot-Air Balloon World Tour will not officially start until the end of the year, you can already see the details on the DDT website and plan a trip, since the balloon will support passengers.
Like the previous KAWS: HOLIDAY’s, a series of merchandise has been created for the occasion, which will feature the usual COMPANION that emulates the balloon in the three usual colorways: black, gray and brown, 30 cm high. 2 figures with the same design, in white or black porcelain, that open in the middle, and a sweatshirt.
