It was an awesome experience to see his sculptures and art super close.
🙈Off we went to the show, and as expected, our eyes exploded.🙈
KAWS is an artist who Giana has always gravitated toward. He is definitely one of her favorite artists who inspires her through his use of color and imagination. His creations draw the attention of both children and adults, so bringing Giana and seeing her eyes light up was very cool to see.
KAWS is a graffiti artist, illustrator, painter, sculptor, product designer, and toymaker whose work spans the worlds of graffiti, pop art, and consumer culture. His bodies of work are highly charged with an underlying wit, irreverence, and affection for our times.
He has primarily looked to and appropriated from pop-culture animations (including The Smurfs, The Simpsons, Peanuts, Hanna-Barbera, and SpongeBob) to form his paintings, drawings, and sculptures.
Kaws’ well known larger-than-life sculptures and hard-edge paintings really emphasize such a wonderful use of line and color.
American, b. 1974, Jersey City, New Jersey, based in Brooklyn, New York
