The cult New York-based artist recently flooded the NGV with his cartoonish, exuberant works. But you can now see one of his latest in an outdoor gallery by the sea.

It’s been just over a year since cult street-art superstar KAWS took over the NGV with his cartoonish, exuberant and instantly recognisable sculptures.

But, after 14 months in the works, one of the New York-based artist’s sculptures has finally landed at the 135-hectare Pt Leo Estate on the Mornington Peninusla, where it now takes pride of place in the winery’s sculpture park.

The colossal 5.5-metre-tall sculpture – titled Share – was cast in bronze before being painted in understated greys and browns. It’s grasping a smaller similar-looking “BFF” figure (often featured in KAWS’s work), which is painted in eye-popping blue.

Share is the latest addition to Pt Leo’s sculpture park, an outdoor gallery where you can meander along a series of winding paths and take in more than 60 mostly large-scale works from renowned local and international artists – with Phillip Island or sweeping vineyards in the background.

The estate also has a vast restaurant, cellar door and wine terrace. Plus, on-site fine diner Laura.

Pt Leo Estate’s sculpture park is open daily from 11am to 6pm. Entry is $10 for adults and $5 for kids.
