We recently stopped by Honor Fraser in Los Angeles to take in the current showing from Kenny Scharf (interviewed) entitled Pop Renaissance. Split into separate rooms, the two body of works exhibited are well demarcated by both content and space. One room features some newer works inspired by Scharf’s love for the Flintstones while the other section hosted work from when he covered the ceiling of the Palazzo Communale in Italy over a decade ago (the silkscreened canvases were then painted over with his iconic characters at […]

The new body of work is centered around a large 10 panel wood piece featuring a koi fish, and supported by loose portraits as well as a wall of leaves. Take a look at more photos from the exhibition below… Photos via […]

It can be beautiful and at the same time it has […]

For now, Lake won’t be joining Scott with permanent body art as this piece was temporary, although technically she does have a small pea-sized tattoo. […]
