Kenny Scharf was born in Hollywood. His work is instantly recognizable, with idiosyncratic cartoon creatures popping up in the oddest of places: in paintings, on functional objects, or piled up on top of each other to form huge totem poles. Scharf shot to prominence in New York during the 80s as part of the deeply influential generation of artists that emerged at that time. He was part of an East Village trio with Keith Haring, his studio mate, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. His artwork has been exhibited extensively and can be found in numerous international museum collections including The Guggenheim Museum and The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, The Eli Broad Foundation in Los Angeles and The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
