In an Australian first, this exhibition is a comprehensive survey of 25 years of the oeuvre of the New York artist known as Kaws, full of humour, hope and humanity, celebrating his ability to connect with broad audiences.
The full range of Kaws' artistic output will be on display, featuring more than 100 works including iconic paintings reappropriating pop-culture figures to his more recent large-scale abstract works, and an impressive collection of his celebrated sculptural figures.
Kaws engages with universal feelings of isolation and loneliness through his works, in reaction to the turbulent world we live in today. His larger-than-life sculptures are playful, toy-like figures. However, at a closer look, they reveal a fragility and darkness in the vulnerable poses of the characters.
