KAWS has announced a new vinyl figure release in support of the Black Lives Matter protests and movement.

His new work, titled TAKE, will arrive online in blue, pink and black. The vinyl figurine depicts his iconic BFF grasping a Companion tightly on its left side. In addition to the new toy, KAWS says he will also include pieces from his personal collection for sale and restock his KAWS: COMPANIONSHIP IN THE AGE OF LONELINESS book.

The artist has promised to donate a portion of all the sales on KAWSONE to Color of Change and Black Lives Matter. He hopes to raise at least $250,000 to split between the two organizations. Head over to KAWSONE at noon EST on June 9 to purchase and support. Recently, the artist teamed up with AllRightsReserved for an extremely limited teapot.

Release Date: 6/9/20 (Tuesday)
