Who ARTed: Weekly Art History for All Ages

KAWS - The KAWS Album

March 14, 2022

This week's episode was about KAWS. I spoke with Rebecca Potts Aguirre about KAWS and two of his works. Rebecca Potts Aguirre hosts a wonderful podcast: Teaching Artist. She is a teaching artist herself with years of classroom experience and she is a wonderful practicing artist. Here are the links to her relevant content:

Clearly, she is doing tons of amazing things and I was happy she found the time to squeeze one more thing into her schedule and join me to talk about KAWS.

 

KAWS is a highly saught after contemporary artist. He got his start in graffiti as well as doing some freelance work on shows like Doug and Daria. Today his work is controversial at times but bright, colorful, pop art inspired with a contemporary twist that is undeniably fun. 

As always you can find images of the works we discussed at www.whoartedpocast.com

If you would like to support the show, I recently partnered with Ko-Fi to be able to accept donations to cover the costs of production. You can buy me a coffee at https://ko-fi.com/whoarted Because I do not want disruptive ads and I put nothing behind a paywall, listener donations are my only means of defraying the costs. I greatly appreciate your support.
