Notable works: Global Gallery and Museum Shows

Since becoming a design phenomenon, KAWS has landed big-time shows at galleries and museums around the world. His first solo museum exhibition was in 2010, at the Ridgefield, Conn. Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. He's shown at Galerie Perrotin, at More Gallery in Switzerland, at KaiKai Kiki in New York, and his own OriginalFake store in Japan. Acclaimed Los Angeles gallery Honor Fraser is now his home. Also, he's also been a judge on Bravo's Next Great Work of Art and as a panel spokesman at the Fashion Institute of Technology—a man who is truly all over the map.
