Critical Review

The print is part of the Tension collection, a series of ten screen prints which capture the essence of KAWS’ artistic style which is deeply rooted in graffiti, street culture and animation. KAWS’ distinct style can be traced back to his youth and his time spent spray painting buildings in New Jersey, where the artist grew up. The artist went on to hone his graffiti skills in New York, where KAWS would spray paint over adverts he found in bus shelters and phone booths.

Despite harking back to the artist’s youth, the Tension collection was produced later on in KAWS’ artistic career. By this point, KAWS was an internationally recognised artist with a strong global following and had collaborated with prominent celebrities such as Kanye West and Pharrell Williams as well as iconic brands like Nike, Comme des Garçons and Uniqlo.
