Amid the current wave of doom and gloom that washed over this year’s annual Armony art expo in NYC last week, OG Manhattan art star Kenny Scharf reminded everyone that the art world was once a fun place to be with his one man “Scharfland” show at Paul Kasmin’s booth. Consisting of a wide array of beautiful new paintings, a bronze cat sculpture, an outdoor installation of live spray paintings, and even a golf kart transformed into one of Sharf’s characters, Kenny brought back the spirit of the days when he and friends like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Andy Warhol were literally writing the rules of the art world as they went along. Scharf is yet another artist participating in the “Stages” charity art show to benefit Lance Armstrong’s anti-cancer LIVESTRONG foundation during his run in this year’s Tour de France.
