KAWS Just Announced A New Exhibition
It’s time to book a ticket to Tokyo or Hong Kong for KAWS' new exhibition. Treat yo' self!
A few weeks ago, KAWS revealed his Pinocchio-esque ‘Small Lie’ sculpture that will be standing alongside Lamp Bear in Qatar. Just when we thought the Brooklyn-based artist would take time off, he surprises us with an announcement of his upcoming solo exhibitions on the other side of the world.
Contemporary Art gallery Perrotin will be showcasing the artist’s work in Tokyo and Hong Kong, and the simultaneous exhibition will include new works by the artist alongside new iterations of his well-loved cast of characters such as as Companion and Chum.
A press release for the upcoming exhibition states,” Continuing in the tradition of Pop Art, his influential work crosses painting, sculpture and printmaking along with fashion, merchandise and toy production while drawing upon art history and popular culture. In his paintings, KAWS deconstructs his appropriation of iconic characters into forms that draw on the tradition of abstract painting.”
The exhibition will be running from March 22 - May 12 in Tokyo and March 26 - May 19 in Hong Kong
