Architectural Digest has spotlighted KAWS for the cover of its December 2017 issue. The publication recently visited the acclaimed artist’s triangle-shaped home in Brooklyn, New York. KAWS, alongside his wife — acclaimed sculptor Julia Chiang — and two kids, resides in the sizable space which was once a working studio.

The house was initially designed by Masamichi Katayama of Wonderwall. “I used to walk by here every once in a while,” said KAWS. “I wasn’t looking for a place—though I always like to look—so it was a spontaneous purchase. And after completing my main studio, which was a ground-up project, I came into this wanting to just get in as quickly as possible.” The artist’s new studio is just “a short bike ride away,” as per AD.

A never-before-seen BFF chair made in collaboration with the Campana Brothers (as depicted on the cover) alongside paintings by Tomoo Gokita, George Condo, and a sculpture created by his wife Julia Chiang are observed in the living room. Not to mention, works by Raymond Pettibon, George Condo, Mike Kelley, Alex Katz and more are found throughout his home. “I don’t buy art to put in specific places,” explained KAWS. “I just collect what I love and hope to find a place for it to be visible.”
