KAWS Bio

About The Artist

KAWS is a well-known street artist, apparel producer, and graphic designer. Following in the footsteps of artists like Kenny Scharf and Keith Haring, KAWS started his career as a graffiti artist and soon found his footing in the New York, Tokyo, and Paris art worlds. His work, which blends elements of illustration, pop culture, and contemporary art, has given him an aura of coolness that seems impossible to shake, even as his career continues to rise. With a group of devoted collectors, including Tobey Maguire and Pharrell Williams, promoting his work, and installations at hot-spots such as the Standard Hotel in Manhattan's Meatpacking district, KAWS is a name to watch in the Pop art world.
