Kaws likes to think of his work as a sieve of modern culture; an assimilation, distillation and dissemination of thoughts,
art, ideas, collaborations, and interactions with people. This process is all encompassing; he does not like to pigeonhole
his aesthetic into one type of medium. He likes for his work to be thought of an overarching brand however; it is also
immediate and organic. Kaws filters the images and information that he comes in contact with everyday and
re-contextualizes them. He then likes to distribute these ideas through multiple channels be it magazines, figurines,
paintings or clothing.
Kaws’ work started at the street level and over time it has evolved into a collaborative workshop, a place that has
become a collective for creative thought.
