Brian Donnelly aka KAWS, is one of the most prominent and prolific artists of his generation. His body of work straddles the worlds of art, fashion and design. Admired for his larger-than-life sculptures and colour-filled paintings, KAWS’s cast of hybrid cartoon and human characters are drawn from pop-culture animations and form a distinctive artistic vocabulary.
In December 2017, KAWS released a new version of his classic companion character, titled "Small Lie". The figure features the companion slumped over in what appears to be a disappointing stance, with a long nose that's reminiscent of Pinocchio. The small lie companion was originally debuted in a 30-foot tall statue made of African hardwood at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in the United Kingdom.
