Despite the announcement that they would be shutting down their operations after seven years of successful business, celebrated street artist KAWS and his OriginalFake imprint have been steadily rolling out new Medicom figures throughout 2013. The latest debut arrives in the form of the recognizable “Passing Through” Companion figure. Offered up in two colorways – all-black and tonal grey – each somber character is seen perched with its head in its hands. The “Passing Through” Companion is something that KAWS has frequently returned to, having seen exposure most notably in the ongoing larger Companion statue traveling exhibition as seen in Atlanta’s former, “Down Time” installation.
Both of the characters in black and grey are now available directly from Wish. Orders can be placed by phone order by calling 404.880.0402 ext #2 or via email by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Retail is $425 USD.
