A few days ago, Brian Donnely aka KAWS opened his first exhibition in Atlanta titled “Down Times” at the High Museum Of Art, “Down Times” is also the largest exhibition of KAWS’ work to date.
From a 24-foot-long triptych to 27 circular paintings, the show is a visual feast that can’t be done justice through photos.
The majority of the works feature abstractions of KAWS’ iconic KawsBob character, which is his interpretation of the popular Nickelodeon character SpongeBob. A large part of KAWS’ work draws inspiration from pop culture, particularly iconic cartoon characters ranging from Snoopy all the way to “The Simpsons.”
Brian Donnely also painted a 22 foot tall mural inside the museum titled “The Nature Of Need”
If you are in Atlanta the show runs until May 20th so make sure to stop by if you are in the area.
