Kaws:OriginalFake

Kaws:神秘的玩具潮流涂鸦艺术家

Kaws于1974年在美国新泽西州出世,原名BRIAN,毕业于纽约。大学毕业后,Kaws曾为Disney公司及MTV电视台非正式地干了些杂活。之后得到朋友的帮助,冒险将自家的骷髅头标志元素注入纽约市的巴士站及电话亭的广告海报,将其改头换面,从此KAWS便一举成名。

其实Kaws从12岁开始已经对涂鸦发生兴趣,但一直到1991年才正式开始在街头进行涂鸦。如之前提到的一样,Kaws与一般人在墙壁、地铁、火车上涂鸦不同,他却在广告画或海报上(例如DKNY, Calvin Klein)加上自己著名的Skull与Crossbones涂鸦图案,他通常会把海报带回STUDIO加工再送会原位,正因如此,他又被称为“涂鸦怪盗”。而他的作品很快便被职员替换掉,所以特别珍贵。但后来Kaws成名后,聪明的广告客户就主动把广告送给Kaws“涂鸦”,首先这样做的便是主打年轻市场的DIESEL。

之后Kaws在巴黎开画展,同时推出作品集。日本杂志也极力推介,更为他推出专集。使KAWS慢慢走入正统艺术殿堂,现在,KWAS的作品市场价格已经高达3万美金。 在时装方面, Kaws亦替 Undercover,realmad Hetic等热门街头品牌设计服饰。音乐方面,KWAS 近期就为TOWA TEI的《SWEET ROBOTSAGANST THE MACHINE》及APE的《CHERIE》设计CD封面。

现在Kaws依旧在为涂鸦艺术走入殿堂和生活不遗余力,即使现在Kaws大热,其同样也认为再风光都只是过去,不可以重复自己,所以一直在努力寻求突破,也许这点正是街头艺术要继续生存和发展比其他领域的艺术更要重视的问题。   

Kaws作为一个潮流品牌,影响甚广的是Be@rBrick和牙仔牛王,其中二代以颜色的变化更为醒目,引领了新一代潮流。

成名后Kaws经常受到各方邀请进行个人展览,不但在各地继续创作Kaws风格的“恶搞”,亦在伦敦、纽约、东京等地开设Kaws个人画展,同时亦推出Kaws的作品集。创作中诞生的Companion系列以及Bendy系列更加成为经典,同样成为Kaws独有的创作元素。

2006年创办街头潮流品牌Original Fake,进军潮流服饰市场,利用各样独有的Kaws式代表元素,延伸至服饰当中。在时尚方面, Kaws亦为Bape、Undercover,realmad Hetic、Clot等热门街头品牌设计服饰进行联名企划。音乐方面,Kaws亦为Towa Tei的《SWEET ROBOTSAGANST THE MACHINE》、Bape的《CHERIE》、Kanye West等一线明星设计CD封面。

在媒体各方的极力帮助下,使Kaws慢慢走入正统艺术殿堂,现在,Kaws的艺术作品市场价格已经高达3万美金之多。当中Wonderful World这个作品更是以高达40万美金的价钱售出,与国内知名艺术家岳敏君创作的figure更是在艺术界轰动一时。

Kaws从此成为街头潮流以及艺术创作同样取得很好成就的创作人。

Brian Donnelly’s world

Brian Donnelly (born 1974 in Jersey City, New Jersey), professionally known as KAWS, is a New York-based artist and designer of limited edition toys and clothing. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

KAWS was born Brian Donnelly in Jersey City, New Jersey. He graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in illustration in 1996. After graduation, KAWS briefly worked for Disney as a freelance animator painting backgrounds. He also contributed to the animated series 101 Dalmatians, Daria and Doug.

He began his career as a graffiti artist growing up in Jersey City, New Jersey. Later moving to New York City in the 1990s, KAWS started subverting imagery on billboards, bus shelters and phone booth advertisements. These reworked advertisements were at first left alone, lasting for up to several months, but as KAWS’ popularity skyrocketed, the ads became increasingly sought after. In addition to New York, KAWS has done work in Paris, London, Berlin and Tokyo.

In the late 90s, KAWS began to design and produce limited edition vinyl toys, “an instant hit with the global art toy-collecting community,” especially in Japan, where this genre is well respected and widespread. More toys and later clothing were made for Original Fake, a recent collaborative store with Medicom Toy, in the Aoyama district of Tokyo where an original limited edition product is released each week. KAWS has also participated in other commercial collaborations with Nigo for A Bathing Ape, Jun “Jonio” Takahashi for Undercover, Michael “Mic” Neumann for Kung Faux, snowboard projects with Burton, and sneakers with Nike and Vans. His most recent collaboration was with Comme des Garçons. As of August 2010, it is reported that Kaws has designed a limited edition bottle for Dos Equis, a Mexican beer brand. The bottle is slated for release in Mexico in early September 2010.

KAWS’ acrylic paintings and sculpture have many repeating images, all meant to be universally understood, surpassing languages and cultures. One of KAWS’ early series, Package Paintings, was made in 2000. This series, entitled The Kimpsons, subverted the famous American cartoon, The Simpsons. KAWS explains that he “found it weird how infused a cartoon could become in people’s lives; the impact it could have, compared to regular politics.” In addition, KAWS has reworked other familiar icons such as Mickey Mouse, the Michelin Man, the Smurfs, and SpongeBob SquarePants.

Through all of his projects, KAWS has successfully blurred the line between fine art and mass-produced merchandise. He uses his products to allow his imagery to infiltrate a larger audience than that of the fine art world. The artist is currently an active member in both the commercial and fine art communities. Recent solo exhibitions include OriginalFake at the Bape Gallery in Tokyo (2003) where his sculpture “Wonderful World” sold for $400,000. KAWS has been periodically showing both paintings and products at Colette in Paris since 1999. His work is included in the traveling exhibition Beautiful Losers, which started at the Cincinnati Contemporary Art Center and will be traveling through 2009 throughout the US and Europe.

KAWS “PassingThrough” Exhibition Recap

After much buzz, and anticipation, the long awaited KAWS “PassingThrough” exhibition is set for an official opening tomorrow. The oversize companion figure was unveiled last week, and tomorrow marks the unveiling of KAWS’s most extensive show to date. KAWS’s full array of figures will be on display, including his chum, companion, and tweetie vinyls alongside some specially designed drawings that will debut at the show. The work will be on display until October 24th at Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong’s Harbour City with a full compliment of merchandise for sale including t-shirts, mugs, and sticker sets.
