Recently, I had the privilege of seeing the KAWS exhibit in Ft. Worth. It was a relatively small display compared to his other shows but enough was there to give you feel for his work. Aside from making giant, half skinned martian-looking statues and paintings of spongebob with his eyes x’ed out, he also sells branded limited-edition toys and high-end fashion. Read a review of the show on glasstire.
