Meaning & Analysis

Man’s Best Friend 8 is one of 10 screen prints that compose the Man’s Best Friend collection in which KAWS presents an evolution of a much-loved cartoon character, bringing it to contemporary audiences in a new and daring form. KAWS is known for his experimentation with iconic cartoon characters. The artist has appropriated well-known cartoons, such as The Simpsons, SpongeBob Square Pants and Astro Boy. As well as appropriating and adapting already known cartoons, KAWS has also created a stock of his own cartoon characters, such as Companion, Chum, Accomplice and Bendy.

KAWS’ interest in cartoons can be traced back to his time in New York studying illustration at the School of Visual Arts, as well as his early career as a freelance animator for popular animation series such as Daria and Doug. The artist also took to the streets, practising graffiti. Street art and graffiti culture clearly influenced KAWS and has led the artist to be compared to Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, two leading 20th century artists who emerged from the New York City graffiti subculture of the 1980s.
