Critical Review

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.
