Kenny Scharf has remained a key and prolific figure in the art world since his early participation as a key proponent in the NYC East Village Art scene in the early 1980s, where he worked alongside artist peers such as Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

His works have been exhibited widely ever since. When we look at a work by Kenny Scharf, we see a dynamic and joyous burst of colour, form and energy radiating from the canvas. However, these saturated, seemingly playful shapes have sharp teeth that lurk beneath, reflecting the dual nature of our modern society. Kenny Scharf’s paintings are always reflective of the artist’s unique, self generated, visual universe, drawing from ideas and experiences extracted from the surrounding world.
