Video: Kaws's "Companion" Debuts tomorrow at Macy's Thanksgiving Day ParadeStreet Art // Wednesday, 21 Nov 2012
The 86th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade along New York’s Central Park goes down tomorrow, meaning plenty of massive balloon characters, custom floats, marching bands, and all things visually and musically loud. This will be the first time since Keith Haring that an artist who began his career in graffiti has contributed to the parade. Brian Donnelly aka Kaws, will have his signature character “Companion” floating high above in the balloon line-up, a unique opportunity for any artist. ARTINFO visited the artist’s studio to discuss his preparations and feeling about this particular project.
