The internationally acclaimed artist KAWS creates colorful canvases full of animated gestures and expression with a smooth, brushless style. KAWS' paintings and sculptures play with familiar characters out of Disney, the Smurfs, and Sponge Bob Squarepants and draw on popular imagery to create powerful and humorous works. His career has evolved from the urban graffiti world, to commercial success with lines of toys and clothing, a float for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and an album cover for Kanye West.
