The Boneyard Projects :: Kenny Scharf from Jason Wawro on Vimeo.

The latest addition to curator Eric Firestone’s Phoenix, Arizona-based Boneyard Project is a giant vintage Lockheed Jetstar covered in the trademark bright graffiti stylings of NYC Pop Art legend Kenny Scharf. For those not familiar with the Boneyard, it’s a massive plot of desert land populated by vintage jets rescued from salvage yards and converted into “art planes” by a wide-ranging cast of art world anti-heroes including Shepard Fairey, Retna, Faile, and Richard Prince, to name a few.

4363964574_0f10031e70_o What has to be the final nail in the “Street Art” coffin was driven in last weekend by none other than MR. BRAINWASH (aka: “The Christian Audigier of Street Art”) when he opened his massive, self-produced “Icons” show in a rented space (which, ironically, was once a real art gallery, pre-recession) in the heart of Chelsea.
