Description

Prominent in the contemporary art scene, Kenny Scharf is well-known for his fantastical and playful anthropomorphic creatures. Scharf himself notes that his compositions often have sinister undertones. Those undertones can be felt in the present piece in the thorns that line the interior of ‘Scary Guy,’ below his bunny-like face and ears.
