KAWS at Gering Lopez Gallery, New York23rd
The work of Brooklyn-based artist KAWS, who began his career as a graffiti artist and is now known for channeling modern pop and street culture into his art, is on display at Gering Lopez Gallery, on Manhattan’s East 57th Street. The exhibit features KAWS’ latest sculptures and paintings, including a collection of 33 candy-colored bronze sculptures of the artist’s head. ‘Chum,’ a sculpture, is a characteristically KAWS interpretation of the Michelin Man carved in red fiberglass–the sculpture is also rendered in five other unique colors. Other works on display include large acrylic paintings with bold colors and cartoon-esque forms, including several likenesses of SpongeBob Squarepants, a favorite subject of KAWS and a theme the artist explored earlier this year in an exhibition at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin.
