Part of Contemporary Masters

"I liked the fact that [KAWS] didn't exist. It wasn't a thing, just sort of lettering that worked. I liked the sound, like a short, strong mark.” - KAWS

Born in 1974 in New Jersey, USA, Brian Donnelly aka KAWS chose his creative nickname based on the visual interaction between letters.

KAWS has one of the most diverse artistic practices of any contemporary artist, with examples proudly exhibited by Moco Museum in Barcelona and Amsterdam. Graphic, vibrant paintings, sculptures, collectible artworks, and unique design pieces mix elements from nostalgic illustration to pop culture. There is a wide range of work to be discovered by KAWS in Barcelona.

Final Days

A Grand Welcome

Final Days by KAWS is the unmissable highlight that officially welcomes you to Moco Museum Barcelona. The hatless Kurf character is inspired by the cartoon Smurfs. Interestingly, the monumental Final Days is sculpted from afrormosia, a historic African wood that is believed to hold spiritual energy. The hefty, richly-colored character towers above us with outstretched arms: Welcome to Moco!
