KAWS카우스 (1974~)

KAWS (브라이언 도넬리, Brian Donnelly)는 뉴욕에 위치한 스쿨 오브 비주얼 아트 (School of Visual Arts)에서 일러스트를 공부하였습니다. 그는 어린 시절부터 뉴저지와 맨해튼에 있는 건물들 외벽에 그래피티 작품을 남기고 'KAWS'라고 표시하였습니다. 그는 이 'KAWS(카우스)'를 예명으로 사용하고 있는데, 이는 단순히 글자들이 함께 있는 모습이 마음에 들어 선택한 것입니다. 그는 1999년 서브컬처가 거대한 시장을 형성했던 일본에서 그의 첫 아트토이 '컴패니언'을 출시했고 큰 인기를 끌면서 세계적인 작가 반열에 올랐습니다. 그의 작품의 특징은 대중에게 친숙한 캐릭터들의 변주에 있습니다. 카우스는 스누피, 심슨, 미키마우스 등 대중문화 속의 캐릭터들을 패러디한 작품을 선보이고 있습니다. 또한 2018년에는 'KAWS : Holiday' 캠페인으로 잠실 석촌호수에 자신의 대표적 캐릭터인 '컴패니언'을 띄워 큰 화제가 되기도 하였습니다. 이외에도 다양한 패션 브랜드들과의 컬래버레이션을 발표하며 서브컬처와 순수예술의 경계를 넘나들며 활발히 활동하고 있습니다.
