KAWS

The Artist Takes Manhattan With His Inflatable Cartoon Creation

A 41-foot-high monochrome balloon courtesy of the artist KAWS, aka Brian Donnelly, is the airborne star of today’s film from director Jake Sumner. The helium-filled polyurethane version of KAWS’s famous “Companion”, a cartoon-like ghoul that sits with its head in its hands as though weeping, was immortalized in all its tragi-comic glory as it drifted along the Upper West Side towards downtown Manhattan last month during the famed Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
