Necessaries Toy Foundation – B-Kawz
Now that KAWS may be retired from the vinyl toy game (we really hope not *crosses fingers*), Necessaries Toy Foundation has come up with their very own homage to one of the superstars of the designer vinyl toy world. Introducing B-KAWZ – Appropriating the Appropriator.
B-KAWZ there isn't enough shit at Comicon already
B-KAWZ you are not a very discerning toy collector
B-KAWZ absolutely everyone bastardizes everyone else
B-KAWZ art imitating art is still art, geddit?
Call it what you will, is it a blatant rip-off or a noble tribute?
We at Necessaries Toy Foundation consider it a homage
to two successful and very respected artists.
It is also commentary and parody.
Is it an original idea? We think it is, but only in an esoteric sense.
In fact, it is a very original idea if you are a lateral thinker.
Appropriator? Perpetrator? Instigator?|
It is what it is, and I yam what I yam.
B-KAWZ is a metaphor du jour. Merely this and nothing more . . .
The Golden edition B-KAWZ will be available at your local designer toy retailers very soon. This figure stands 11” tall and is an edition of 250 pieces for $100 available from retailers including DeKorner. How do all of you collectors feel about this piece? Will this be something you would want to add to your collection? Is this something that goes against your KAWS collections?
