About the artist
KAWS has become a truly international artist thanks to his appeal to various audiences around the world. His iconic imagery is easily recognizable, and through his appropriation strategies, he has developed a work that transcends genres and challenges all hierarchies. Over the past two decades, KAWS has been acclaimed with work that demonstrates unique agility and craftsmanship, as well as underlying humor and irreverence. His prolific work straddles the worlds of art and design and includes paintings, murals, sculptures of all sizes, graphic and product design, advertising intervention and now augmented reality. Throughout his career, KAWS has created works that engage audiences beyond the traditional art world. From his early interventions in the public domain to large-scale sculptures in Hong Kong Harbor and Mount Fuji, his art connects with experienced art lovers as well as people who have never set foot in museums and galleries exhibiting the work. What it has to offer is nothing less than an exploration of humanity itself, perhaps best illustrated by its cast of hybrid cartoon characters. The art of KAWS is both playful and deeply emotional. KAWS (born 1974) lives and works in New York.
