Produced in 2017, The News is a collection of 9 screen prints in colours which come in an edition size of 100. The pieces were made by the critically acclaimed American artist and designer, KAWS (born Brian Donnelly), who rose to fame in the late 1990s through his experimentation with art and design and ability to bridge the gap between street art and high art. By 2017, KAWS had become a prominent artist, whose work was recognised all over the world. The artist had developed a strong global following and worked with prominent celebrities such as Kanye West and Pharrell Williams, as well as notable brands like Nike, Comme des Garcon and Uniqlo.

The prints in The News stand out from other collections made by KAWS due to their circular shape. The artist tends to privilege more conventional rectangular canvases, as seen in KAWS’ later collection of screen prints, Tension. The print designs in The News are abstract and bold. KAWS uses bright and vibrant colours which resonate with Andy Warhol’s use of colour in his Pop Art prints from the 1960s. The prints showcase KAWS’ unique artistic style which favours bold, gestural lines, an emphasis on colour, and distinctive graphics, such as the repeated use of crosses. The prints appear to be close-up sections of KAWS’ cartoon characters, however the isolated body parts are hard to discern amidst the medley of shapes and colours.
