Kaws, an artist who used to reappropriate images from major corporations without their permission, collaborates with them now instead, just like other streetwear brands. His latest partnership is with Disney and for me, like graffiti writers painting legal walls, there’s something weak about obtaining permission from the companies that should be getting knocked-off. Then again, if his art basically consists of putting an X on someone else’s character, maybe it’s the only way for him to make work? |High Snobiety|
