Last weekend, the distinctive stylings of Kenny Scharf (interviewed) were put on display at Honor Fraser in Los Angeles. Hodgepodge, his second showing at the gallery, features paintings, sculptures, a Cosmic Cavern installation, and a customized Cadillac, as well as an opening night performance by longtime friend and frequent collaborator, Ann Magnuson. Take a look at more photos of the opening taken by James Ng after the jump…
In about a week, April 14 to be exact, Kenny Scharf (interviewed) will be opening his newest show at the Honor Fraser Gallery in Los Angeles. Although we spied his animated character on TV recently for his cameo on The Simpsons, we haven’t attended a solo from him since NY early last year. If you are lucky, there may be the customary free donuts – besides the amazing art of course – for those attending although you may have to be satisfied with a performance […]
If you missed the Exit Through The Kwik-E-Mart on The Simpsons that aired earlier this month, you can now watch the entire episode on Hulu. Episode 15 of the 23rd season features Shepard Fairey, Ron English, Kenny Scharf, and Robbie Conal as they give Bart some tongue-in-cheek career advice on being a street artist.
Last month, we brought you the trailer for Here Comes The Neighborhood, a new video series focusing on Wynwood Arts District in Miami. The latest episode features the prolific street photographer, Martha Cooper (interviewed), and her views on the blossoming mecca of street art and graffiti that has become a destination for all art fans during Art Basel Week. Check out some of the other episodes after the jump including features on IRAK, Sego & Saner, Intercambio, Kenny Scharf, and Gaia.
Wow, it looks like Wynwood Walls is really trying to the get the jump on this year’s US rendition of Art Basel. After alerting you to some RETNA activity down in Miami and then a subsequent update (ROA, Gaia, Nunca, HOW & NOSM, the Date Farmers, Faile, and Bast), it’s time for another look as Kenny Scharf, Interesni Kazki, and Saner & Sego have rolled into town and we have some new pieces from the Date Farmers and Vhils as well. More photos after the […]
Although the new public library in West Hollywood isn’t set to open until the fall, the three large murals by Shepard Fairey, Kenny Scharf, and RETNA are now complete. Billed as an extension to MOCA’s Art in the Streets exhibition, the project (which we have been following) was apparently conceived by Jeffrey Deitch himself and will also include some additional indoor work from Fairey. The work however may not be permanent as the city has only committed to hosting the murals through July 2012. More […]
After spending four days in Philadelphia last week working on a mural, Kenny Scharf (interviewed) returns to Los Angeles to paint his wall for the West Hollywood Libary Project. It will probably take a couple more days for him to finish, but when it’s done, it will stand alongside murals by RETNA (covered) and Shepard Fairey (more on this tomorrow). Photo set after the jump taken for us by Carlos Gonzalez .
Drawing comparisons to his recent mural at the Pasadena Museum of California Art for the Street Cred exhibition (covered), RETNA (featured) lent his street calligraphy to an ambitious new project with Kenny Scharf and Shepard Fairey in Los Angeles. We’ll have more for you as Shep and Scharf get in the mix, but head over to the West Hollywood Library if you are interested in seeing some of these street legends in progress. More pics after the jump…
After collaborating with Liu Bolin in New York for the Chinese artist’s Hiding In New York series of works in front of his Bowery & Houston mural, street legend Kenny Scharf (interviewed) headed over to the City of Brotherly Love for his next project. Painting a crescendo of his creatures on the side of tall building, Scharf used his spray cans, scaffolding, and even an umbrella hat in completing this large Philly mural in just four days. More pics after the jump…
