Mass Appeal catches up with one Brian Donnelly -- better known as KAWS -- at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, where his massive exhibition KAWS @ PAFA is currently on display. He discusses how his initial involvement with PAFA's Sculpture Plinth Exhibition, in which a rotating series of contemporary, attention-catching art is shown in unexpected locations, grew into a larger and more comprehensive painting and sculpture exhibition. He goes on to describe different aspects of his career, stating that it's "fun to get to hop in and out of different worlds." (He cites his involvement with the 2013 MTV VMA as a prime example.) Check out the full interview in the video below.
