Brian Donnelly, professionally known as KAWS, was born in New Jersey in 1974. He attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City and even worked for a period of time for Jumbo Pictures where he worked on the background for the animated cartoon 101 Dalmatians. During this time, he also was experimenting with street art. He eventually came up with his signature “look” for his sculptures, which have distinctive X’s over the eyes. KAWS has been compared to the likes of Andy Warhol as he is able to create both the appeal of commercial and fine art in his pieces.
