New York-Based Artist Kaws, Tote Bag
These shopping bags created for Harbour City Mall in Hong Kong are signed by New York-based artist Brian Donnelly known as KAWS. A certain Disney influence is visible in the works of this artist, also a designer of limited edition toys and clothing. The pair of white gloves on red/black background easily makes us think of the hands of Mickey Mouse.
There aren’t many artists to belong to both the commercial and fine art worlds, but the few existing ones are trying to express something above the fine-art and mass-produced merchandise. Intriguing enough for a tote bag, isn’t it?
