The French artist works gently and precisely on one of the most famous toys...
When we speak about MP Gautheron, the words "color", "finesse" and "originality" come to mind. It has never been more true than with his last achievement. Imagined for Strangecat Toys, MP Gautheron sets out to reinterpret Kaws' Companion. What is Strangecat Toys doing in this case, will you tell us ? If we believe the legend of the video "step by step" shared by MP Gautheron on his Instagram account, this new figurine would be intended to be exhibited and then sold. And what event brings together artists, pieces from Kaws and Strangecat Toys ? The MISAPPROPRIATED ICON Show !
On closer inspection, there were so many clues on Strangecat Toys' Instagram account with artists' repost, relaying their version of Companion. And it's the #misappropiatedicon3 that wins. We therefore make the connection with the text of Mp Gautheron who will present a more detailed figurine. Flowers and hummingbird are there to send Companion to a world of nature and sweetness. If our intuition is right, this figure of Companion by MP Gautheron will be presented next month at the Redefine Gallery in Orlando at the MISAPPROPRIATED ICON Show of Strangecat Toys. The names are already starting to leak : Luaiso Lopez, Dhani Barragan or Squink are confirmed. In the meantime we leave you with the video of MP Gautheron, once again impressive.
