No Reply is a set of 10 sizable silkscreen prints on wove paper created by the artist KAWS in 2015. At this point in his career, the artist had developed a global following and the demand for his work was catching like wildfire. Early works like his advertising poster interventions had been embraced by the market and he had added the likes of Kanye West and Pharrell Williams to his extensive roster of well-chosen collaborators. KAWS’ popularity ensured that even the most commercial of his creative ventures were deemed valid artistic endeavours.

Hung as a set together, No Reply is a collection of works that are highly impactful and visually pleasing. Firmly grounded in the fundamentals of KAWS’ artistic practice is the exploration of the human condition and the creation of a unique visual language rooted in street culture, animation and commercial communication. An edition of 100 was published by New York based Pace. Each one is signed, numbered and dated by the artist in pencil.

The works in No Reply are reminiscent of KAWS’ earlier works. The portrait format recalls the boxed advertising posters housed on the sides of bus stops and phone booths which KAWS would surreptitiously gain entry into and paint as his own interventions. These boxes like the gallery or artwork frame represent rarefied exhibition spaces that elevate the contents above the fly papered masses. This early approach introduces the clear sense of vision and narrative that has defined KAWS’ career.
