Critical Review

Alone Again is a signed screen print in colours on wove paper produced by the renowned American artist and designer, KAWS in 2018. The print depicts an abstract composition of graphic shapes rendered in bright colours. The lively colours inject the print with energy and dynamism, making it a visually engaging composition. The print stands out from others made by KAWS as it has a more experimental and abstract style. KAWS often incorporates cartoon characters into his prints, harking back to his early career as an animator for Jumbo Pictures.

The print was exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit in 2019 along with two other screen prints and five sculptures. The exhibition captures the essence of KAWS’ artistic style, characterised by an emphasis on colour, use of bold gestural line, and experimentation with graphic shapes.

KAWS’ style was clearly influenced by New York’s street art and graffiti scene and the artist is often compared to Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, two notable 20th century artists who emerged from the New York City graffiti subculture of the 1980s. Like these leading artists, KAWS was successfully able to bridge the division between street art and high art and his graffiti inspired artworks have gone on to be sold for six figure sums.
