Lot Essay

"In March 2020, my wife and I had Covid-19. I was in bed for three weeks. There was all this uncertainty and news about not touching your face, not touching anything. I started doing drawings of CHUM with hands all over his face - touching and contaminating. It's meant to be humorous but at the same time, it's very stressful. As soon as I got out [of isolation], I turned the drawings into a series of 10 paintings, which is hung as a grid in the exhibition." - KAWS quoted in Vogue discussing the paintings that inspired this set of prints.
