KAWS’s creative output traverses the worlds of art, fashion and design. Continuing in the tradition of pop art and central to his practice, this sculpture is an exploration of humanity, appearing to be downcast and isolated. Portrayed in a larger-than-life size, in a hunched position, and with its head tilted towards the ground, WHAT PARTY acts as a reminder of the increasingly toxic nature of public discourse and rise of disillusionment in our times. He prompts us to combat underlying hatred and fear in society and to live with compassion. The work shows KAWS's formal agility as an artist, accompanied by his underlying wit, irreverence and affection.
KAWS (Brian Donnelly, b. 1974, US) is a contemporary artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. His prolific body of influential work straddles the worlds of art and design to include paintings, murals, large-scale sculptures, street art, graphic and production design. Drawing inspiration from pop-culture animations, he creates with a sophisticated humour and thoughtful interplay with consumer products and collaborates with global brands. KAWS has had solo exhibitions at National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (2019); Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (2016); and Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis (2017). His work is in the collection of Brooklyn Museum, New York and High Museum of Art, Atlanta, among others.
