Fans of world famous street artist Brian Donnelly, aka KAWS, should make sure they’re ready for a double dose of releases this month.
Although October is almost over, KAWS will be releasing not one, but two, new things for your mantle before the month is up. Normally KAWS’ vinyl figurines aren’t released close together, but that may be the loophole, because the first figurine to release is actually a ceramic bowl.
Based around Snoopy and The Great Pumpkin, the small bowl has a removable top in the shape of a pumpkin, with Snoopy serving as the handle for the top. Featuring KAWS’ signature XX’s on the pumpkin’s and Snoopy’s face, this piece is arriving just in time for Halloween. It was released today for $136 via KAWS’ online store, however you will be able to find it at Original Fake retailers worldwide.
The second release this month comes in the form of Astro Boy. For kids who grew up in the ’90s, this piece may bring a feeling of nostalgia unlike the Snoopy Ceramic Bowl. Set to release on October 27th, the Astro Boy Companion is based off the most recognized work from famed Japanese cartoonist Osamu Tezuka. It will cost you $230, but to many it’s well worth it!
Take a look at the KAWS October releases, as well as the Original Fake Astro Boy t-shirt that will be released at the same time as the accompanying companion in the gallery above.
