This is the first UK museum exhibition of work by the renowned American artist KAWS, whose wide ranging practice includes painting, sculpture, graphic design, toys and prints. The expansive Longside Gallery features the artist’s large, bright, graphic canvases immaculately rendered in acrylic paint, alongside towering sculptures in fibreglass and wood. The historically designed landscape of Yorkshire Sculpture Park becomes home to a series of monumental and imposing sculptures in KAWS’s trademark style – nostalgic characters in the process of growing up.
“KAWS” runs from 6 February until 12 June 2016 at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, West Bretton, Wakefield, United Kingdom. Admission is free.
