KAWS: A Holiday Sale


An online-only sale, 5 to 13 December 2019




LONDON - 5 DECEMBER 2019 – Phillips is pleased to announce KAWS: A Holiday Sale, an online-only sale of 33 collectible figurines by KAWS. Following the recent success of 24/7 in Hong Kong and HEATWAVE, the inaugural online-only sale in London, KAWS: A Holiday Sale runs from 5 to 13 December and presents collectors with a broad and colorful selection of toys at a range of price points.


Charlotte Gibbs, Associate Specialist, Head of Online Sales, jointly said: “Following on from the huge successes of our inaugural online auctions, HEATWAVE and 24-7, in London and Hong Kong this year, Phillips will offer a selection of compact toys by contemporary artist KAWS in a festive online-only sale. Realizing his playful graphic compositions in three dimensions, KAWS’ inventive figures draw upon nostalgic characters from popular cartoons and advertising, creating his own world of protagonists who appear throughout his body of work. With a forthcoming major survey of his practice at the Brooklyn Museum planned for 2021, KAWS’ distinct aesthetic is immediately recognizable. We are delighted to offer a varied array of KAWS collectibles at accessible estimates under £10,000, in the run-up to the holiday season.”
