Focus: Kaws

 
 

The work of Brooklyn-based artist Brian Donnelly, who makes his art under the moniker “KAWS,” is the subject of the first Focus exhibition. KAWS’s vast body of work includes graffiti (early in his career), murals, paintings, and sculpture. Following along the continuum of Pop art, his work critiques contemporary consumer culture, blurring the boundaries

between it and the art world. Building an artistic language, which includes altered forms of familiar animated characters, such as Mickey Mouse, the Michelin Man, and Sponge Bob Square Pants, his cartoonlike hybrids are often depicted in various states of the human condition.

Most recognizable in all of his characters are the X-ed out eyes and/or hands. These Xs can be read in

several ways. They serve recognizable, branding considered benign some form in almost
