The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is one of New York City’s most honored and anticipated events of the American holiday season. If you’ve slept through it in the past years, you might want to stay awake for it this year, as artist KAWS has been tasked with creating a float for the parade. Fresh off the launch of his “The Nature of Need” exhibition in Hong Kong as well as his sit down interview with HYPEBEAST, KAWS plans to use his signature Companion character with hands tightly clasped over his eyes as the float that will rise high above the street as a balloon. KAWS follows in the steps of other artists in the past such as Tom Otterness, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, and even Tim Burton.
