I rode downtown to see the finished Kenny Scharf mural on Houston and Bowery here in NYC. Riding on the sidewalk for this photo op somehow seemed like the right thing to do.
I rode down there a couple of weeks ago and met Kenny Scharf as he was taking a break.
When I was in college I was given an assignment to focus on 2 artists and create one work of art. I decided to paint my sofa bright yellow with Keith Haring people all over it. These people would be carrying televisions with Kenny Sharf paintings in them. I know I have a picture of that sofa somewhere. I had that couch for many years.
When I was younger I once had the pleasure of seeing Keith Haring laying down some chalk drawings in a subway station, and now I got to see Kenny Scharf too.
