Kenny Scharf moved to the big Apple in the late 70’s, the Golden Age that continued throughout the early 80’s, when creativity and art ruled the streets of NYC. Inspired by graffiti’s lack of boundaries and the possibility to connect directly with people, Kenny’s principle is to reach out beyond the elitists’ limits of fine art and create a direct dialogue with popular culture trough his art.

We are still buzzing from our week at Comic-Con, and one of the reasons is that we were able to witness the brand new sculpture that Robert Williams created with the help of Gentle Giant Studios. For the July 2012 issue, we paired Robert with old friend Kenny Scharf (who also had sculptures made with Gentle Giant for his newest solo at Paul Kasmin in NYC) to discuss not only their respective collabs with GGS, but also their historical perspectives on sculpture and how their sculptures pair up against art history.

Our May cover artist, Kenny Scharf, was apparently arrested for what over the last 30 years he has become well-known for, spray painting. Apparently the artist was arrested in Bushwick, Brooklyn while painting one of his signature snakes and apparently as Art Sucks reports, while in custody cops were googling him and requesting autographs. "Cops who arrested me were fans and wanted to talk about exit through the gift shop and even liked the tag. At the first holding cell in Williamsburg (there were only 5 people in the cell) the police were googling me and asking about things like the tunnel nightclub." He continued on in saying “I was in there 30 years ago and im sorry to say its much worse now. Kind of like hell.”
