Kaws, an artist influential of street-culture
Kaws from his real name, Brian Donelly is a New York artist who is part of modern art and street-culture. Kaws is a designer, painter, a sculptor capable of adapting to any environment. He begins his learning in animation after having succeeded in the very famous School of Visual Arts in new York. Very quickly he went to graffiti in the streets of New York before rethinking advertisements by adding his universe to it. True figure of the underground current and the embezzlement of branding, he explodes in the eyes of the world with his creation which has been following him now, the character Companion. There is an easily recognizable figure with crosses in place of the eyes, resembling Disney style and being part of a creative approach similar to Takashi Murakami and its flowers. He quickly made a name for himself in the art world, we find his work in the greatest museums as in High Museum in Atlanta, Modern Art Museum by Fort Worth or exhibitions in the gallery Perrotin in Paris. But what makes him famous with the commuté sneaker And streetwear These are his collaborations and in particular one with Uniqlo.
