NGV Curator Dr. Simon Maidment explores KAWS’s work as a skilled abstractionist and contemporary colourist. Here we see the influence of KAWS’s background as an animator on his use of colour and the precision in his technique.

KAWS: COMPANIONSHIP IN THE AGE OF LONELINESS exhibition was made possible by the generous support of our partners: Presenting Partner Creative Victoria, Major Partners UNIQLO and Chadstone – The Fashion Capital, Supporters Asahi Beverages Australia and Dulux, and Media Partner Smoothfm.
