Unlike his shows at Mary Boone Gallery and PAFA in 2013, KAWS' "PLAY YOUR PART" exhibition at Galeria Javier Lopez features no Companion sculptures. Instead, the lofty Madrid gallery plays home to a couple select paintings by the Brooklyn artist.
While KAWS' show in Philadelphia was particularly impressive because of the way his colorful paintings and sculptures mingled with the classic works on display at PAFA, his latest exhibition feels slightly more intimate. As opposed to blending in with the art venue, KAWS' vibrant, playful caricatures pop and come to life on the Spanish gallery's white walls. The show, which KAWS graciously shared some preview images of weeks ago, opened last Thursday and will be on view until April 23.
