To coincide with this year's Art Basel Switzerland installment which opened yesterday to the public, KAWS has joined forces with More Gallery in the picturesque area of Giswil, Switzerland, to produce a set of giant new wooden Companion sculptures. Kitted out in Pinocchio guise with the attendant lederhosen and pointy nose, the towering figures are a fitting homage to the area's heavily forested and remote topography, and are a wonder of woodworking craftsmanship. Accompanying the sculpts are a series of new red-toned circular paintings featuring closeup Spongebob details as a nice color pop.
