Critical Review

The print is part of KAWS’ No Reply collection, a body of 10 screen prints, all of which are inspired by cartoon imagery and depict compositions made of cartoon characters’ faces. The collection captures KAWS’ unique visual language which was rooted in animation and street culture. The artist studied illustration at the New York School of Visual Arts, and then went on to work as a freelance animator for Jumbo Pictures where he worked on a range of famous television animation series. While in New York, KAWS would frequently take to the streets with a can of spray paint. It was through his experimentation with graffiti that KAWS developed his unique set of cartoon inspired graphics.

KAWS’ visual style has been likened to that of Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, two leading 20th century artists who emerged from the New York City graffiti subculture of the 1980s.
