Best Art Drops: KAWS ‘Together’ Sculpture, Takashi Murakami ‘Flowers’ Cushions & More

The signature styles from expert incorporators of pop culture and street art such as Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Banksy, and KAWS are observed on various media. Haring's man figure, Basquiat's mask-and-skull motifs, Banksy's spray-painted stencils, and KAWS X-ing out the eyes of famous cartoons go beyond the traditional canvas and are embellished from almost any tangible object imaginable, including T-shirts or even a high-end furniture item. The influx of varying art products grants fans more affordable options when it comes to buying pieces from their favorite contemporary art luminaries.
