"Working with and getting to know Free Arts NYC the past few years has been a great experience," KAWS, born Brian Donnelly, said in a press release. "I truly appreciate their mission to empower underserved youth through art and mentoring. My hope is that this painting will encourage others to volunteer or support the organization in any way possible. I'm honored to have the opportunity to support Free Arts NYC."
