Stop by and see the latest eye-catching additions to NorthPark Center’s impressive art collection, by Brooklyn-based artist KAWS. Clean Slate, a monumental sculpture on Level One near Macy’s, depicts one of the artist’s most famous figures carrying two smaller, adolescent figures. Survival Machine, on Level Two near Macy’s, is a series of five paintings containing popular imagery with layers of contradictions and subtleties.
Spanning the worlds of graffiti, pop art and consumer culture, KAWS conveys his underlying wit, irreverence and affection for our times. Well known for his larger-than-life sculptures and hard-edged paintings with similarities to popular cartoon figures that emphasize line and color, KAWS creates an emotional cast of hybrid cartoon/human characters in his work.
If you want to see more of KAWS, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is hosting a major exhibition KAWS: WHERE THE END STARTS through January 22, 2017.
Now, we think that’s KAWS for celebration!
