First off, welcome back from the weekend!
Second, When I walked up to the KAWS statue in the meat packing district, I wasn't sure what to think...
It did surprise me because I had seen pictures but it never was solid in my mind where it actually was located.
KAWS is a New York based artist and toy designer. He began his career creating creating graffiti around Jersey city. You can find more about his background here.
Found a fantastic interview with KAWS in the New York Times.
KAWS artwork is pretty amazing and defiantly worthy of a look through.
In other news.....
The last few weeks I have spent a lot of time looking at other artists and their works in the streets. I myself have been working on many things but I have been holding back. Since it was the end of the summer I grew a little too focused but didnt feel like displaying anything until I made sure I was getting things right. In other words, I should be getting back to displaying some of my smaller pieces a few times a week for the next week or three.
