BFF stands for “Best Friend Forever”. So as its name suggests, KAWS: BFF communicates about long-lasting friendship, introducing an ironic twist along with fresh creative elements that has never been on show at any other place before. Once unveiled, it ranks among KAWS’ biggest sculptures. While reminiscent of the artist’s iconic “COMPANION” figure, featuring his trademark soft skull with crossbones and crossed-out eyes.

KAWS, who creates stunning art pieces, says,

“I have staged exhibitions in many cities around the world already. Yet, I feel honored that Central Embassy and SIWILAI have offered to host the global debut of my KAWS:BFF. By presenting my work for public display, my pieces can communicate with more people. As Central Embassy itself boasts impressive architecture, it is a perfect venue for art exhibitions. I am also happy to have received very warm welcome from my Thai fans. I hope everyone is happy about my arts exhibition too”
