KAWS, “GONE” at Skarstedt Gallery
Thursday November 8 2018 - Wednesday December 19 2018
Like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat before him, artist Brian Donnelly—aka KAWS—has taken his art from the streets to major museums and galleries. Case in point: His debut exhibition with Skarstedt at the gallery’s tony Upper East Side branch. Featured are new paintings and larger-than-life size painted bronze sculptures of Donnelly’s signature KAWS character, CHUM (a sort of skull-headed Mickey Mouse with Xs for eyes)—including one standing figure cradling the limp body of Cookie Monster in his arms in homage to Michelangelo’s Pietà.
