KAWS mania has been running rampant the last few days here in Los Angeles to a point where people that have never even set foot through the doors of any galleries felt compelled to see the spectacle first hand. I knew it was going to be insane seeing how everyone’s Twitter “tweets” were all declaring their intentions to check out the show, so I sat this one out so that I could check the show another day sans the massive crowd. Luckily, my friend Keith Marzo of DC Lifestyle was on hand to snap a few images of some of the amazing work that was on display. Chum was in full effect, as well as some Smurf — or rather, “Kurfs” — paintings, colored busts of the artist’s head, and other works were all exhibited, and as expected, they were all long sold out.
