My office building lobby has an art piece by KAWS in the middle now. I recognized his work immediately because I researched artist collaborations with brands for a summer internship I did at an art company in Shanghai a few years back. As a pop artist whose aesthetic translates well into products, KAWS partners up with brands regularly.
I was away on vacation and just saw it as I was coming in yesterday. It seems so random and out of place, haha. I kind of like the imagery of the embrace though. It sort of speaks “let’s all get along and have a nice day” to me.
