This work, which is reminiscent of a flower arrangement produced in 2001, is a characteristic of Shaf, the originality created by being created entirely by freehand, the playfulness and fun like a child, and the cuteness that leads to anime characters. Combined with the funkiness of street culture, it is a colorful graffiti work that looks like candy. Schaff’s work invites our daily lives to the fantasy world, gives us new life as if we were magical, and makes us imagine a completely different space from our daily lives.
“Contemporary artist who is said to be a pioneer in the American graffiti art world”
Born in California, the USA, in 1958
Kenny Scharf was born in California in the 1980s and is a school of visual arts in New York. He majored in painting and obtained a bachelor of fine arts.
Also, in the 1980s, along with Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring, he was active in the East Village art scene and is known to have been particularly close to Keith Haring. He was also one of the central figures in “Club 57”, who had a close relationship with Andy Warhol and Klaus Nomi.
Schaaf’s unique, vibrant candy-like colors are the keynote. Still, the faintly poisonous fantasy graffiti artworks are not limited to paintings and sculptures and make full use of various media and materials to create fashion and images. , Installation art, street art.
Also, in Schaff’s work, TV anime heroes such as “The Flintstones of the Primitive Family” and “The Jetsons,” which are thought to have been influenced by his childhood, and pop culture icons often appear as motifs. The works inspired by them create a unique and symbolic world view in which the characters live. At the same time, Schaff’s characters seem to show a critical stance against modernism. There may also be an aspect of connecting with popular culture beyond the boundaries of elitism in the art world through works, which is a belief that Schaff himself cherishes.
Kenny Scharf is a playful artist who constantly destroys reality and breaks down any rules there.
