Insta-Peep-o-Gram: KAWS in Paris
By Sade Lythcott
Here’s a double feature on Instagrams we recommend. First is artist JR who is a world renowned TED prize winner for his mural project in Palestine and Israel. It seems JR has been following his artist friend KAWS on his recent launch in Paris at the Galerie Perrotin. The Wall Street Journal documents KAWS’ evolution from underground to international fame in a feature last week on WSJ.com.
JR (@jr_artist) snaps up his rarely photographed buddy, KAWS, beside his large sculpture. If you want to see it from KAWS’ perspective, you can follow him at @Kawsstudio on Instagram. The exhibit in Paris at Galerie Perrotin runs from Nov 3rd through December 22nd. For more info on “Imaginary Friends”, visit Perrotin.com.
