"As far as my opinion on galleries, I think they are a great thing. I see them as another outlet. I'm sure by now you've figured out that I do my work for everybody to see. That's the whole point."

Brian Donnelly, better known as Kaws, is a world-famous artist and the creator of some of the most iconic art toy sculptures. What started as a small graffiti career turned out to be one of the most significant careers in the world of art toys and design. Kaws is a truly innovative visionary artist whose willingness to push boundaries and defy expectations make him one of the most sought-after artists of today. His beginnings were quite unusual - Kaws spent his early career working as a freelance animator for Disney and as a graffiti artist before he made a move in a solo career.

When asked about the meaning of Kaws, he said: "It's just a combination of letters I liked. And when your whole art's based on the lettering you choose, you kinda figure out what ones work together. I just liked the shapes of the k, a, w, s. It has no meaning."

Over the years, Kaws has developed a body of work that transcends genres and defies all hierarchies and forms. His prolific oeuvre identifies with experienced art lovers as well as with people who have never set foot in the museums and galleries. With his now-iconic characters Companion, BFF, and Chum, Kaws has conquered the art world, making them instantly understandable to his audience, while transcending both language and culture worldwide.
