KAWS: Passing Through @ Harbour City, Opens Today

HC photo 1.JPG

Brian Donnelly, more commonly known as KAWS, has become one of our culture’s most storied artists and designers. From his graffiti roots and re-appropriation of art in public spaces, the New-York based creative took a slow and calculated route towards his work. With increasingly large projects under his belt in a more mainstream realm, he has still maintained a notable degree of humbleness through it all. While most of his public image may be that of a serious individual, beneath it all lies a truly interesting and fun personality who has come to make his mark through painting, fashion and toys.

In his recent exhibition in Hong Kong titled “Passing Through”, he unveiled a massive 5 meter version of his popular Companion character, as well as showing a collection of all-new artwork. As an artist first and foremost, we spoke with him regarding his artwork and the planning of the event, as well as interviewing a major cornerstone of the project, SK Lam of AllRightsReserved.
The “Passing Through” exhibition will run until October 24th, 2010.
