KAWS, born Brian Donnelly on November 4, 1974, is an American artist and designer who has gained a reputation for his eye-catching toys, paintings, and prints. After completing a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York, he started working in animation. KAWS developed his unique moniker by combining the shapes of the letters “k,” “a,” “w,” and “s.” He explained that his entire art revolves around the lettering he chooses and how he can best combine them.
Despite his background in graffiti, KAWS has made a name for himself as an accomplished artist and designer. His work is renowned for its distinctive style, and his toys, paintings, and prints are highly sought-after by collectors.
