Presently available for pre-order and shipping on September 5th, 2021, KAWS: WHAT PARTY by Daniel Birnbaum and Eugenie Tsai, published by Phaidon, is a comprehensive monograph, outlining the work of Brian Donnelly, aka KAWS, one of the most creative forces and sought-after artists of our time. KAWS’s work is known for straddling the line between popular culture and fine art, crossing standard mediums of sculpture and painting with vinyl toys, merchandise, and fashion, venturing most recently into augmented reality. This book features a collaboration with the acclaimed artist, showcasing some of his most well-known sketches, preparatory drawings, and even some never-before-seen images of KAWS at work.

KAWS: WHAT PARTY is a behind-the-scenes look at the artist, revealing the meticulous process that goes into creating his most iconic works. This, along with the major retrospective exhibition currently running at the Brooklyn Museum, readers can truly experience the artist’s unique ability to reshape the way society thinks about culture and contemporary art today. Both Daniel Birnbaum and Eugenie Tsai have extensive experience within various art arenas, lending credence to their collaboration with KAWS. Daniel Birnbaum is the director of Acute Art, which is an art technology laboratory located in London, a curator and art critic as well as a contributing editor to Artforum. Eugenie Tsai is the Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Brooklyn Museum.
