  16. Just beKAWS

    by Hendrick Hansson

    It’s perhaps the most common complaint fans make about their favorite musician, athlete, artist, “He sold out” or “the money changed him”. However, this is not a criticism that can be leveled towards Brian Donnelly, better known by his street-art moniker, KAWS.

    KAWS quickly outgrew the middle class suburban utopia of Jersey City, New Jersey, and escaped into the pounding urban metropolis of New York City, taking the train over the bridge every day to go skateboarding with his buddies. It was only a matter of time before young KAWS found himself immersed in the counterculture cousin of skating - Street Art, specifically, Graffiti.

    Before long, he escaped the confines of vandalizing trains and walls and graduated towards reconceptualizing billboards and bus stops across New York with his trademark cartoon embellishments and X’d out eyes. In the mid 90’s, in an attempt to legitimize his hobby to his parents, he enrolled at New York’s School of Visual Arts, earning his degree in 1996.

    It was during a trip to Japan in 1999 that KAWS was embraced by the local subculture for an art form that was condemned as vandalism in his home country - he released his first toy statue on the Japanese market in the same year. The artist soon caught the eye of famed Japanese designer and BAPE founder Nigo, and the pair collaborated on a clothing line in 2001.
