He resides and works in Brooklyn New York creating much sought after and unique sculptures, acrylic paintings on canvas as well as screen prints But he is most recognized for his BFF figures, clothing, skate decks and limited edition toys. His work can be seen in galleries and museums around the world as well as in many private celebrity collections. Like Banksy and Shepard Fairey, KAWS career began with an obsession with street graffiti. In case you are wondering KAWS doesn't mean anything significant, the artist just liked the way the letters KAWS looked together. Up for a treat? Check out the work he did in collaboration with Dior at the Paris Fashion Week in 2019! FYI: A KAWS painting recently sold at a record breaking (for the artist) price of $14.7 million at Sotheby's in Hong Kong!
