Kenny Scharf, New York

A view of Kenny Scharf’s new public project on Bowery and Houston. Still a work in progress, the mural replaces Barry McGee’s red graffiti wall. The classic elements of Scharf’s style are on display: subverted images of comic books, Pop Art, jarring colors and surreal themes. Scharf is a natural choice for this Bowery location as
an ever-present Downtown art figure carrying on the traditions of late friend Keith Haring and the spirit of Deitch Projects, New York. Photo and text Juliana Balestin
