We love catching an artist when they are doing big things. For KAWS, he is all about big things these days, as in big sculptures in big sculpture parks. For the May 2016 issue, we talk to the Brooklyn-based icon about the quiet intensity of his new exhibition and retrospective at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in the UK, as well as his history as it has led him to be one of the most influential artists of his time.
Here's what's also in the May 2016 issue:
—Deanna Templeton and the process of "Swimming Pool"
