250_7fe6_3.jpgLong before Brian Donnelly—better known as KAWS—made mediocre ashtrays and designer vinyl toys that Japanese kids fawn over, he was taking out phone booth advertisers literally. The street artist would gain access to the kiosks and remove mostly hot model featured ads, replacing them with his signature character altered versions. This late 1990’s era of relevant KAWS art is highly coveted as recently demonstrated by this eBay auction, with his vandalized Christy Turlington for Calvin Klein ad selling for $22,000 after 51 bids. |WhatYouWrite|
