KAWS took to Instagram this past Thursday to announce the release of his new URGE portfolio print set. The limited edition works consist of 10 high quality screen prints portraying his signature CHUM character in colorful variations.

The vivid compositions depict a cropped view of the Michelin Man-inspired mascot being swarmed by its “XX”-marked hands in contrasting hues. Each print measures 17 by 12.75 inches and arrives in an edition of 250 plus 50 artist proofs. All works are signed and numbered by the artist with the full set priced at $28,000 USD.

Those interested in purchasing the KAWS URGE portfolio set will need to submit an order form here by November 13 at noon EST. “If demand exceeds the available quantity, purchasers will be selected at random. Successful customers that have been selected will receive an invoice by November 25th,” as per a statement.
