Produced in collaboration with Damiani and Standard Press, Kolors surveys artist Kenny Scharf’s body of Pop-Surrealist work, focusing on monochrome paintings and large-scale sculptures. Scharf’s use of airbrush-like oil and acrylic paint demonstrates the influence of street culture within the very contemporary art practices that he helped establish.
Born in Hollywood in 1958, Kenny Scharf rose to prominence alongside contemporaries such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. Scharf is a pioneering artist who integrated street culture into contemporary mainstream art through sculpture, installation and canvas. His love of popular culture recalls a lifelong fascination with television. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn and Los Angeles.
