KAWS Creates Massive Light Installation for Seoul's LOTTE World Tower

Placing his signature ‘XX’ motif onto the 1,820-foot skyscraper.

KAWS’ giant floating Companion and sculpture in Seoul aren’t the only public artworks on view. The Brooklyn-based artist is now lighting up the South Korean capital’s night sky with a massive new light installation on the LOTTE World Tower — the tallest building in the country. His signature XX motif is placed onto the 1,820-foot structure in unique digitized versions. Conclusively, the artwork was made in collaboration with LOTTE and AllRightsReserved.

Check out the landmark piece in the gallery above and let us know your thoughts. In other KAWS news, the artist collaborated with Yoon on a selection of jewelry items for Dior’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection.
