KAWS Show Opens in L.A.

Posted on February 20, 2009 Under Art

Artist/provocateur KAWS has only recently begun doing official art exhibitions, but even though his fans may arrive with dollar signs (instead of double-x’s) in their eyes, don’t call him a sell-out. Josh witnessed the KAWS-craze in New York a few months ago, and now it’s set to hit L.A. Beginning tonight, the Honor Fraser gallery will host KAWS’ first West Coast solo exhibition, “The Long Way Home.” The exhibit will include a life-size Chum and several new paintings and sculptures that are likely to feature the artist’s take on the Smurfs and Spongebob. There will be an opening reception from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. tomorrow, and the show will run through April 4th. That should give you plenty of time to avoid the paparazzi who will no doubt be circling like hawks to capture the celebrities and their checkbooks.
