06.02.16 - 12.06.16
Longside Gallery and open air
This is the first UK museum exhibition of work by the renowned American artist KAWS, whose wide ranging practice includes painting, sculpture, graphic design, toys and prints. The expansive Longside Gallery features the artist’s large, bright, graphic canvases immaculately rendered in acrylic paint, alongside towering sculptures in fibreglass and wood. The historically designed landscape of YSP becomes home to a series of monumental and imposing sculptures in KAWS’s trademark style – nostalgic characters in the process of growing up.

“Nostalgic characters in the process of growing up”

@hypebeast just posted a project I did with @Nike alongside @nycparks for the Stanton Street Basketball Courts in the L.E.S. The official unveiling takes place on November 10 #KAWS #NYCParks #Nike #LES

The first edition of hypebeast magazine with KAWS on the cover sold out, this is your chance to pre-order the second edition. Apparently it will have a slight variation on the cover, I still expect it to look really good.
