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.

“Exclusive Footage of KAWS tearing it up on the streets of NYC and Tokyo in 1997. This is his first bus-stop in NYC, a bunch of pieces in Tokyo, along with some great commentary by fellow artist Ron English.”

    I wish KAWS would come back out and paint again… i’m not even talking about illegal stuff… just rock some walls here and there with some of his old crew mates… I have no doubt in my mind it would happen one day. Just thought I add a little more of encouragement.
