The award-winning documentary on the life of Kenny Scharf, a prolific New York Street artist who, together with Keith Haring and Jean-Michael Basquiat, conquered the art world and would become one of the icons of Pop art. Along with friends Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kenny Scharf grew from a graffiti artist into a major force in the 1980s NYC art scene. Obsessed with garbage, cartoons, and plastic, this playful Peter Pan’s roller coaster career flourished despite the decimation of the AIDS crisis and the fickle tastes of the art world. From street art to museums, Scharf continues to create colorful, complex work that puts him at the forefront of where popular culture meets fine art. The documentary features Kenny’s arrival in New York until the present day and his continued career as an artist and iconoclast. 1hr 17 min; Directed by Max Basch and Malia Scharf.

The virtual screening will be immediately followed by a Q&A with the director.
