Awesomely Trippy Shit!

Scharf to this day is making artwork that makes the viewers think about where the line is and how far has the artist pushed it. In 2001, he released a cartoon of his own, "The Groovenians" of which there was only one episode.

Scharf was a key figure in the East Village art scene of the 1980s, with shows at Fun gallery (1981) and Tony Shafrazi (1984), before seeing his work embraced by museums, such as the Whitney, which selected him for the 1985 Whitney Biennial.

With an easy to relate aesthetic thanks to its strong pop-culture undertones, Kenny Scharf opens his latest exhibition titled Barberadise later this month. The show features a series re-appropriations of cartoon franchises created by the legendary Hanna Barbera including the contrasting stone-age family, The Flinstones and the futuristic Jetsons “amidst world annihilation”. The opening reception is slated for September 12th and will conclude on October 31st.
