About the Work

Kenny Scharf, an American-born artist is a painter and installation artist associated with the Lowbrow movement, and best known for work inspired by comic books and pop culture. “Acid Rain” is a unique trial-proof hand-signed screen-print, featuring bold colors signature to Scharf’s style. The image is 32 x 40 — inches.

Acid Rain and Aqua Pollination are outstanding examples of Scharf’s fantastical and imaginative style. With vibrant colors and surfaces oozing with life, these two unique trial-proof prints are hand-signed and play on Scharf’s longstanding commitment to and interest in environmental concerns. Both signal the effect of water – either toxic or life-giving – to the planet while invoking a fantasy land where plants resemble arabesques and quenching waters become playfully flirtatious.

Born in Los Angeles, CA, he studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and became part of the East Village art scene during the 1980s.Though Scharf’s brightly colored imagery is generally playful, he has remarked that darker themes exist beneath the surface of his works, visible upon closer inspection. Scharf was a part of the 1980s East Village Art movement, along with his good friend and fellow street artist Keith Haring. The artist says he has been influenced by all 20th-century art movements, including Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art.

About the Artist

Born in Hollywood, Califonia in 1958, Kenny Scharf lives and works in Los Angeles, California and New York, New York. Kenny Scharf rose to prominence alongside his friends and contemporaries Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring in the East Village art scene of the 1980s. One of the first artists to inject elements of street culture into the mainstream of contemporary art, Scharf has continued to pioneer projects like his Cosmic Cavern—a now legendary all-night DayGlo disco party held in the basement of a Brooklyn warehouse from 2009-2010. His paintings incorporate imagery from advertisements, cartoons, and classic Americana into exuberant compositions with an underlying subversive edge. His work has been included in numerous group exhibitions and he has had solo exhibitions at Pasadena Museum of California Art (2004); Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Los Angeles (2001); Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (1999); The Dali Museum, St. Petersburg, Florida (1997); University Galleries of Illinois State University, Normal, Illinois (1997); Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Monterrey, Monterrey, Mexico (1996); and Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, Florida (1995) among other locations around the world.
