Iconic American artist Kenny Scharf recently launched his latest exhibition at New York City’s TOTAH gallery called “Blue Blood.” The presentation features a dynamic series of paintings made only using three colors: red, blue, and gray. Scharf’s ubiquitous motifs are observed across the works such as “futuristic planets, personified nebulae, and risible vortices transmogrify into alluring visages and patterns,” said the gallery in a statement.
The institution’s lower level features an immersive black-light installation with the walls filled with vivid murals of the artist’s otherworldly creatures in the same palette. The site-specific piece “alludes to his historical connection with the East Village of the 1980s, underscoring a masterful painting technique while exemplifying his exuberant disregard for boundaries,” added TOTAH.
