New Yorkers know KAWS as the Brooklyn kid who introduced Kate Moss and other top nineties models to an adorable ghostly character by doctoring it into glossy fashion adverts at bus stops across the city. The artist was famed for removing ads from their cases with an illegally acquired skeleton key, altering them, and returning them to their original spot. However, for his latest show opening tonight uptown at New York’s Gering & López Gallery, KAWS’ art involves no untoward activity. The artist presents 33 life-size bronze sculptures of his own severed head—albeit in candy colors—alongside new paintings and sculptures of his perennial character Companion’s much cuter skull. The exhibition is up until December 23 at 730 Fifth Avenue.
