Kenny Scharf "NATURAFUTURA" & "THREE DOZEN!" Exhibition Recap

Kenny Scharf was born in Los Angeles and rose to prominence alongside his friends and contemporaries Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring in the 1980s. Born from the transitional zone where the jungle meets the sea, the paintings in “NATURAFUTURA” explore the richness of this landscape and humankind’s multi-layered connections to it. In these paintings, Scharf uses his own visionary lens to bring forth images of a fragile paradise populated by vivid flora and fauna set against voluminous grounds of highly keyed, patterned color. Across the street at 511 W. 27th St., the gallery presents “THREE DOZEN!,” a pop confection comprised of 36 of Scharf’s signature donut paintings. The brightly colored images of assorted donuts floating against surreal skyscapes showcase the artist’s trademark wit and fascination with optimistic fantasy.
