Heritage Auctions continues to spearhead notable sales of streetwear and key contemporary artists. Following the platform’s Supreme auction, the latest sale revolves around the largest range of hard-to-find KAWS Companion toys. Pulled from the private collection of elite art collector, Ronnie K. Pirovino, the auction features the KAWS x Karimoku Companion valued at $15,000 USD, the KAWS x Hajime Sorayama Companion in chrome for $12,000 USD, as well as the KAWS Accomplice figure at $6,000 USD.

“Upon first glance, I was viscerally hit by the KAWS Companion’s homage to Mickey Mouse, one of my favorite icons as a child,” said Pirovino to Heritage Auctions of his first encounter with the artist’s work. “The sculpture was both menacing and comical; both anchored in long-established pop culture, yet whimsical.”

Head over to Heritage Auctions’ website to learn more about the sale and bid on your favorites. The official auction launches this November 7 at noon EST. Elsewhere in art, Oli Epp showcases new paintings at the Artissima Art Fair in Turin, Italy.
