KAWS
American, b. 1974
Follow

KAWS is a multi-faceted artist straddling the worlds of art and design in his prolific body of work that ranges from paintings, murals, and large-scale sculptures to product design and toy-making. His iconic “XX” signature has its roots in the beginning of his career as a street artist in the 1990s, when he began altering found advertisements by incorporating his own masterful paintings. Evoking the sensibilities of Pop artists like Andy Warhol and Claes Oldenburg, KAWS possesses a sophisticated humor and thoughtful interplay with consumer products and collaborations with global brands. He often draws inspiration and appropriates from popular culture animations to form a unique artistic vocabulary and influential cast of hybrid cartoon and human characters.

Robert Lazzarini
American, b. 1965
Follow

In his unsettling sculptures of distorted objects—including guns, street signs, and windows—Robert Lazzarini pursues his fascination with the way in which such well-worn and common things can become imbued with stories, serving as stand-ins for much larger narratives and the people who use them. Inspired by Gordon Matta-Clark and focused on a distinctly American narrative, he constructs his sculptures out of the same materials as their real world counterparts. For Lazzarini, the history of the object, indicated by the marks of time and wear, relates directly to the people who used it, sometimes violently, others casually. As he explains: “A concern of mine has always been the idea of the historicity of the object. Thinking about the object not as this new or ideal thing but as something that’s lived in the world and has been affected.”
