KAWS engages audiences beyond the museums and galleries in which he regularly exhibits. His prolific body of influential work straddles the worlds of art and design to include paintings, murals, large-scale sculptures, street art, and graphic and product design. Admired for his larger-than-life sculptures and hard-edge paintings that emphasize line and colour, KAWS’ cast of hybrid cartoon and human characters are perhaps the strongest examples of his exploration of humanity. He often draws inspiration and appropriates from pop culture animations to form a unique artistic vocabulary for his works across various mediums. Highly sought-after by collectors inside and outside of the art world, KAWS’ artworks, with their broad appeal, establish him as a uniquely prominent artist in today’s culture.
