Nowness, the LVMH-owned media outlet, has released episode one of a video series, which "asks artists about the bigger questions in life;" this first installation features Brian Donnelly, aka KAWS. Luckily, the "bigger questions in life" is just fancy talk for Donnelly talking about his early creative inspirations, and how he mentally goes through the creative process of completing a work, and then moves on. The video, shot while the artist is preparing work to be shipped to Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin for Art Basel Miami 2010, also touches on some of his recent endeavors from a more "art business" perspective, such as his comprehensive book released this year by Rizzoli. Nowness has the fun-to-watch artist interview down: not too much high-concept abstraction, just an accessible view into the artist's perspective. Donnelly is obviously a very important artist to us, and it's been pretty great to watch as his art world star rises. And to get any behind the scenes coverage - which inevitably shows how down-to-earth and completely lacking of presumption the artist is. Check out the video after the jump.
