Critical Review

This print is part of The News collection, a series of nine screen prints in colours, all of which use a circular shape for the print’s design. The choice of shape makes this collection stand out from others made by KAWS in which the artist opts for a more conventional rectangular design. The collection can be compared to the Blame Game collection, produced earlier in 2014, in which KAWS produced ten screen prints which showed close-up sections of a cartoon character’s face, much like he does in this collection.

The colours used by KAWS in The News I are bright and bold. KAWS’ frequent use of vibrant colours, as well as his affinity with the screen printing technique have often led to the artist being compared to Andy Warhol, the leading figure of the Pop Art movement.
