Kenny Scharf’s brand representation marries both the Pop aesthetic of cartoon imagery and the wild creativity of science fiction. The artist, closely tied both formally and personally to the spheres of Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, is known for his vivid, anthropomorphic imaginings. In this work, published in conjunction with the 39th Annual Grammy Awards in 2007 to benefit the N.A.R.A.S. Foundation, geometry meets fantasy, with a tumultuous composition defined by freewheeling color and expressive form.

Kenny Scharf (American, b. 1958) became a leading figure of the New York art world during the 1980s. In this vibrant decade of artistic revolution, Scharf collaborated with fellow artists and friends, Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. In a similar vein, his oeuvre draws upon the aesthetic and techniques favored in graffiti, cartoon animation, and the graphic novel. Examples of Scharf’s work can be found in permanent collections across the globe, such as as the Whitney Museum of American Art and Cologne’s Museum Ludwig.
