I attended the opening of Kenny Scharf’s Naturafutura and Three Dozen! at the Paul Kasmin Gallery. I’ve gotten to know Kenny over the past two years from his Cosmic Cavern parties to his show at The Hole. His work is vibrant and fun and expertly executed. Naturafutura is a new series of large-scale paintings inspired by his time spent in Brazil. And with donuts being my favorite food, I obviously love Three Dozen! I also enjoyed the donuts that we could eat – I chose the pink one. Delicious.
Naturafutura and Three Dozen! will be on view January 27th through February 26, 2011 at Paul Kasmin 293 Tenth Avenue and 511 W. 27th Street respectively. Here are some photos from the night (though I unfortunately didn’t get any of the man of the night):
All in all, it was a great night to celebrate the work of a very talented man, Kenny Scharf.
