The next stop for New York-based contemporary artist KAWS’ HOLIDAY sculpture known as COMPANION is Mount Fuji. The 40-meter long art piece will arrive near the mountain on July 18 as teased in a sketch drawn by KAWS.
The HOLIDAY project is a collaboration between KAWS and Hong Kong-based creative studio AllRightsReserved. The COMPANION has made his way around Seoul, Taipei and Hong Kong, with his fourth stop set for the land of the rising sun’s World Heritage Site and symbol Mount Fuji.
KAWS:HOLIDAY JAPAN is a camping experience sponsored by Herschel Supply where visitors can admire the sculpture with Mount Fuji in the background at the Fumotoppara campsite in Shizuoka Prefecture. It will take place from July 19 to 24.
KAWS will travel to Japan to kick off the experience with the “Ceremonial Camp Day” event on July 18. Tickets will go on sale worldwide for just 24 hours via the official website from June 28 at 10:00am (JST). The tickets will roll through a lottery system with 400 randomly selected winners.
Exclusive merchandise will also be available to purchase worldwide over on DING DON Takuhaibin’s online store from July 18.
Items include various plush toys, 9.5″ vinyl figures, a set of three kokeshi dolls, a set of four ceramic plates, t-shirts, cushions and more. They are all limited in stock so be sure to get your hands on them quick. There will also be Japan-exclusive colours for the t-shirts and plush toys too.
