Rockefeller Center presents a new commission SHARE, a sculpture by KAWS on Center Plaza through October 2021. The 18-foot-tall bronze figure features two of the artist’s iconic motifs, “COMPANION” and “BFF”. The installation coincides with the artist’s current survey at the Brooklyn Museum, KAWS: WHAT PARTY.

KAWS often appropriates and draws inspiration from pop culture animations, forming a unique artistic vocabulary across mediums. Admired for his larger-than-life sculptures and hardedge paintings that emphasize line and color, KAWS’s cast of hybrid cartoon characters are the strongest examples of his exploration of humanity. As seen in his collaborations with global brands, the artist’s imagery possesses a sophisticated humor and reveals a thoughtful interplay with consumer products. KAWS' ability to seamlessly handle surfaces and scale makes him a uniquely prominent artist and influence in today’s culture. This presentation of SHARE is made possible with generous support from Tishman Speyer and Skarstedt.
