Critical Review

Blame Game V is part of KAWS’ Blame Game collection, which is composed of 10 screen prints, all of which focus on isolating a section of a cartoon character’s face. The series captures KAWS’ animation and graffiti inspired visual language, and also features many of the artist’s trademark visual motifs, such as crossed out eyes.

KAWS’ experimentation with bold colour and screen printing in the Blame Game collection is reminiscent of the work of the beloved 20th century artist, Andy Warhol. Warhol, also known as the father of Pop Art, clearly influenced KAWS and his approach to art. Warhol often took inspiration from popular culture, transforming everyday objects such as shoes and Campbell’s soup cans into pieces of fine art. This is apparent in KAWS’ work and his love of popular animations and cartoon characters.
