(The open-air sculture show has been extended through December 2016) On February 2, 2016, KAWS will open his first UK-museum show at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in West Bretton, England. YSP's famous landscape sculptural park will feature a series of KAWS' large wood sculptures, as well as the Park's Longside Gallery featuring his bright paintings and more fiberglass sculptural work.

The behind-the-scenes video preview above shows "the installation of KAWS' 30-foot tall sculpture SMALL LIE (2013) ahead of the opening of new Yorkshire Sculpture Park exhibition (6 February 2016–12 June 2016)."

YSP presents the first UK museum exhibition by KAWS, the renowned American artist whose work has sparked global attention. The expansive Longside Gallery features commanding sculptures in bronze, fibreglass, aluminium and wood alongside large, bright canvases immaculately rendered in acrylic paint. The Park’s landscape becomes home to six imposing sculptures, including a new six-metre-tall work, which carry KAWS’ idiosyncratic skull and crossbones features upon almost-recognisable characters.
