Dissected Companion (grey) is a signed silkscreen print on paper made by the critically acclaimed American artist and designer, KAWS in 2006. Rendered in black, white and grey, the print depicts KAWS’ much-loved cartoon character, Companion. Companion’s appearance is altered significantly in this print, as half of his body has had its flesh removed, exposing his internal organs, muscles and skeleton. Through rendering Companion in such a way, KAWS anthropomorphises Companion, making him seem like a living being, as opposed to a mere cartoon character.
The print comes in two different iterations, Dissected Companion (black) and Dissected Companion (brown). The three versions can also be seen alongside the other works in the Companion collection, all of which are centred around depicting the iconic cartoon character that KAWS created in 1999 while exploring street art and graffiti in New York.
As seen in this print, Companion is characterised by his Mickey Mouse like figure, his skull and crossbone head and his crossed out eyes. The cartoon character’s features carry an air of morbidity, which can be read as a sardonic comment on globalised culture and the state of contemporary society.
