Flashback // KAWS circa 1997


Well before the high demand fine art, the clothing brand, Original Fake, and even before the vinyl figures, Kaws (Cover Story TNO2) was made famous by his prolific coverage over NYC. This video shows footage of some of the artists earliest work. For those of you who know all about Kaws background, this video is interesting none-the-less, those of you made aware of the high profile artist through his more recent and controlled work, check out where it all came from.
