This was the first UK museum exhibition of work by the renowned American artist KAWS, which opened to the public from 6th February to 12th June 2016, at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. When I first heard of this, I couldn't contain my excitement, so I set out on my 4 hour drive from London (8 hours in total with the drive back) and was instantly in awe when viewing the the 30ft figures scattered around the park. Each sculpture were displayed in a variety of positions, shielding their eyes from the sun, seated or leading a child like version of themselves, they had the appearance of gigantic toys! I then set out towards the Longside gallery, where again I was blown away by the vivid, bright acrylic canvases, alongside towing sculptures built from fibreglass and wood. KAWS wants his work to be easily understood, the head of his trademark figure is a simplified skull, with criss-cross eyes signifying drunkenness or confusion, while the round head and balloon feet evoke Mickey Mouse. This was one show I will not be forgetting for a long time and can only wish he comes back to the UK soon, to display this awe-inspiring work.
