First Prev 1 2 3 4 5 Next Last

A new sculpture by contemporary artist Kaws has been installed at The Hamilton Princess.

The sculpture, At This Time, features the artist's signature Companion figure with his head leaning back and both hands covering his eyes.

Made of wood, it is more than six metres tall. A balloon version of Companion floated over New York City in a past Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.

At This Time can be viewed on public display outside of Marcus'. The sculpture was installed by builders from the Netherlands.

Allan Federer, general manager, said: “We would like to thank our owners, the Green family, for adding this spectacular piece of contemporary art to the hotel collection.

“Whether you come by on a Friday for Marina Nights or for dinner at our newly opened 1609 Bar & Restaurant, we encourage the community to check out this amazing sculpture, as it is truly one of a kind.”

Born Brian Donnelly, Kaws is a New York-based artist who began his career as a graffiti artist. Outside New York, he has created works in Paris, London, Berlin and Tokyo.

Later, he became a successful designer of limited-edition vinyl toys and clothing as well as a well-regarded acrylic artist and sculptor.

He is known for his altered versions of popular characters such as Mickey Mouse, the Michelin Man and the Smurfs.
