CBS Sunday morning featured a graffiti artist who hasn't done graffiti in over ten years. Yet at a recent exhibition opening in Manhattan, he drew a mixed crowd of high brow art collectors and edgy street artists.
That's kaws...a graffiti artist gone mainstream.
I won't tell his story here, because you can read about him at the CBS site. But I was riveted to the story and amazed by his art. Sure wish I'd been at that opening.
Oh! And the story of how he got his name? They were the letters he loved to paint when he was doing graffiti.
