About Kenny Scharf

Born 1958 in Los Angeles, CA.
Primary residence in Los Angeles, CA.

1980 B.F.A. School of Visual Arts, New York, NY.

My ambition as a professional artist is to maintain the course that I set 30 years ago by establishing my work in the fields of painting, sculpture, and performance. Every project I undertake is building on my past experiences. My original approach is unchanged; it is a personal challenge to produce the best work possible every time. One very important and guiding principle to my work is to reach out beyond the elitist boundaries of fine art and connect to popular culture through my art. My personal ambition has always been to live the example.
