On August 25th, MTV’s VMAs will take place in Brooklyn at Barclays Center so, it makes sense that the network asked Brooklyn-based artist, KAWS to re-think their iconic moonman statuette. MTV has a history of working with visual artists like, Damien Hirst who put his dots on the Brit Awards trophy and glass artist Dale Chihuly who created a set piece for the 2004 awards ceremony but no other artist has ever been asked to mess with actual the 30 year-old icon.
