Known best for his bright, colorful imagery which depicts cartoon-style characters, Kenny Scharf is a prominent New York City street artist who rose to popularity during the ’80s. A key figure in the East Village art scene, Scharf was good friends with the late graffiti artist Keith Haring and has done a number of collaborative projects including several album covers for The B-52s. The MOCA has selected several of Scharf’s works for their “Art in the Streets” exhibition including a large wall mural and one of his famous blacklight closet installations.
