What about the actual Down Time piece?
The level of creativity, just the way he can put his own signature on it, I applaud an artist that can put his own signature on something that was preexisting. A lot of people see these paintings and don’t even know the preexisting history on it because he’s that good, so it’s pretty dope.
What about the Companion figures - the Darth Vader, the Mickey Mouse. What did you think of those?
The Mickey Mouse one that was half his figure and half with his anatomy (OriginalFake companion). I think that came from somewhere in London where the guy, I forget the name of it, did a big sculpture of the anatomy where it shows all the organs and stuff like that.

Overall, did you enjoy the exhibit?
I love the exhibit, I love the artwork. I wear t-shirts depicting the images with the hands and stuff. My favorite t-shirt is the hand that looks like a gun, you know how you would shoot with your fingers. That’s the dopest one.
Do you plan on going back again?
Most likely on one of those nights when I want to impress some people and show them that I am also into art and not just into music. Definitely.
Did you happen to walk around the rest of the High Museum that day too?
No I walked around a little bit more and checked out a few other pieces but I was mainly in the KAWS exhibit so I couldn’t even tell you exactly which ones they were but it was a lot of physical art, not too many paintings that I saw.
What do you think of the High Museum in comparison to other museums you’ve been to?
I think the High Museum is a pretty dope museum. The architectural design is wonderful and the people are very nice. You see a lot of field trips and whatever and that’s always good that they’re making sure the kids are always into the art. Just everything about it. The people they pick to exhibit there-I went to a Dali exhibit there and a Warhol exhibit. It’s always dope to check out that place. The architectural design is mind-blowing.
