KENNY SCHARF’S “KOLORS” OPENING AT PAUL KASMIN GALLERY, NYC
Opening last night at the esteemed Paul Kasmin Gallery in NYC was Supertouch buddy and Pop Art icon Kenny Scharf's eagerly anticipated show of optimistic new work, "Kolors." Comprised of large-scale funky, colorful abstracts and giant cartoon sculptures, the show was awash with glaring pigment, brightening up a city not yet in bloom and always in need of a giant dose of the positive energy and wonder Scharf brings to everything he touches. The reception was a party in itself with local art stars like KAWS and Jose Parla mingling with Scharf's throng of adoring fans (including one nude, bodypainted female superfan) and snacking on the artist's favorite pink glazed donuts. Later, the action picked up and moved on to the nearby Standard Hotel—where one of Scharf's huge new sculptures is currently on display—for the after-hours throwdown in typical Scharf fashion (which is to say, a serious party). Have a look:
