Last March, KAWS posted photos on Instagram teasing new permanent sculptures in China. This time around, the globally-famous artist officially unveils the SEEING/WATCHING statues that portray the original Companion and the more-recent BFF character sitting back to back.

The humongous artworks were made in collaboration with Hong Kong-based studio, AllRightsReserved (ARR). Both pieces are installed at the edge of the newly-completed Changsha IFS skyscraper in Hunan. Accompanying the sculptures is a sprawling wall wrap at the top of the modern building that depicts an all-new composition by KAWS.
