KAWS marches forward with his WHAT PARTY project as he follows the Hong Kong WHAT PARTY installation with his iconic Kaws sculpture. This sculpture is located in the artist’s home city of New York and is displayed in front of the Seagram Building.
The bronze sculpture stands 20-foot-tall and is a rendition of Kaw’s CHUM character. The character’s placement compliments the architecture of the building well which is designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
The WHAT PARTY sculpture can be viewed now if you’re in the NY area at Seagram’s Park Avenue plaza.
KAWS and non-profit organization Free Arts NYC join forces to release a series of limited prints. Proceeds from the sale of the prints will go towards the charity that is responsible for raising money for underprivileged children in shelters that are crowded whether it be for supplies, activity kits, and virtual mentorship.
The prints will come signed and numbered and will measure 10.5 x 8 inches. There will be a total of 25 including five artist proofs, featuring Snoopy in the form of a silhouette. Inside the silhouette is an array of colorful lines arranged abstractly. These prints will be available for $1,200 USD per piece.
