Kenny Scharf’s career has spanned over 30 years, first gaining prominence in the early ’80s New York art scene with good friend and roommate Keith Haring, who he started the Cosmic Closet parties with. At first the parties were held in their closet with black lights and trash found on the streets. Eventually outgrowing closets, the parties now take place in the basement of his Brooklyn studio. Above, Kenny gives us a look into his pre-party rituals, painting himself and friends surrounded by literally piles and piles of costumes.
