Master at Work
KAWS is an artist worth familiarizing yourself with. Real name, Brian Donelly. He began as a graffiti artist. He would take advertisements & bus stops and add his own iconic cross bone. Graduating from the school of Visual Arts in New York, he worked for Disney a short period then started designing toys for Medicom. Later, he began making clothing for his own brand, Original Fake. He has done collaborations with Bape, Nike, Vans, and his artwork is featured on Kanye West’s 808s and Heartbreak.
Kaws is a beast and his collaboration with Hajime Sorayama (The No Future Companion) is by far my favorite. It is produced by OriginalFake/Medicom Toys with a retail price of $980 via Kawsone.com and selected retailers.
