ABOUT THE WORK:
Astro Boy was the central character in Osamu Tezuka’s manga series published in Japan throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Usually shown in various heroic poses, the manga hero is here transformed into a pathetic figure, balding and bent over in shame. As with all his characters, KAWS brands Astroboy with his trademark "X," as a replacement of the character's original wide eyes.
