Tuesday Evenings at the Modern
Oct 02, 2012

Brooklyn-based artist KAWS (born Brian Donnelly) has received critical acclaim for the ease with which he straddles the commercial and fine art worlds. KAWS’s paintings, sculptures, prints, editioned toys, apparel, and other products deftly reference popular culture and the history of modern painting as they reflect the chaotic nature of contemporary life. KAWS has exhibited his work widely, and his piece Where the End Starts, 2011, was chosen for acquisition from the Modern’s Focus Show series last year.
