Critical Review

The print is part of KAWS’ No Reply collection, which is composed of 10 screen prints. Each print in the collection is unique and depicts an intricate combination of graphic, cartoon inspired shapes. In some of the prints, the viewer can clearly identify certain features of the cartoon character, as seen in No Reply 6. In other prints in the collection, it is impossible for the viewer to discern what they are looking at.

KAWS’ graphic style can be traced back to his interest in street art and graffiti. The artist started experimenting with graffiti when he was a teenager, living in New Jersey. It was while he was spray painting that he came up with the name ‘KAWS’. ‘KAWS’ started off as a graffiti tag, and is now the artist’s professional name, recognised all over the world. Interestingly, there is no deep meaning to the combination of letters, the artist simply chose them due to the way they looked together and their visual balance.
