Critical Review

The print is part of The News collection, a series of nine screen prints in colours which show close-up sections of a cartoon character’s face or abstract compositions of graphic shapes rendered on a circular canvas. The colours used in the collection are bright and vibrant, contrasting with the use of black and white in KAWS’ collection, Man’s Best Friend.

The print captures KAWS’ unique artistic style, which is characterised by the use of bold, gestural lines, an emphasis on colour, and the incorporation of distinctive graphics, such as the repeated use of crosses. KAWS’ style can be traced back to his time spent spray painting buildings in New Jersey, where the artist grew up, and it is clearly influenced by New York’s street culture scene.
