KAWS' solo show at Honor Fraser, "The Long Way Home", went off in fine form last night. Fans were not let down as KAWS unleashed an arsenal of new works, spanning several different styles. One of the highlights was a full room full of 'Kurf' styled works, as well as a 90" tall day-glo green Chum, six 20" tall bronze chums (each a diff. color) and three of his painted bronze head casts (including one that had 'fallen' on the floor).
Opening night crush... place was packed from the onset with a line over three blocks long (a good 200 people deep) the whole night long... sadly, sure many were shut out. But don't worry, the show is up through April 4th. I'll be headed out to take it in one more time for sure, as the place was packed to the gills all evening.

Ahhh, to have gotten one of these packaged gems of 'Kurf' goodness...
More 'Kurf' goodness...
Check out a preview of the show that the LA Times ran here. Great article.
