This rare poster was produced in 1999, very early into KAWS's career with Tokion Magazine as part of a set of 4 high quality posters printed on thicker paper. It features a photo of supermodel Christy Turlington reworked by KAWS in his ad intervention style. It is one of the most well known images that he has produced and blurs the lines between fine art and commercial art.The background is painted over and his Bendy character with his signature XX'd out eyes wraps around the model. His graffiti tag signature is printed within the image on the lower right. It does have two very small pin sized dents that are not noticeable unless you were to look very closely but is in otherwise in very good condition overall. Please note that it is framed so there is some glare from the glass.

Please note that there are many fakes of this poster out there which are much lesser quality. Ours is from Houston Gallery, a now defunct gallery in Seattle that published KAWS's Running Chum prints, and is guaranteed to be authentic. We also have the other three posters from the set from Shepard Fairey, Barry Mcgee, and Perks. We would advise caution from anyone without these as well.
