Kenny Scharf Painting 100 Lower East Side Gates
With the massive Tony Goldman graffiti wall mural behind him, artist Kenny Scharf is presently in hyperactive mode on the Lower East Side. In the middle of last week, the esteemed street writer commenced work on a brand new sanctioned piece straddling the series of gates belonging to 2 Delancey. Apparently the business owners of Bowery Restaurant Supply were all psyched with the idea. A little attention for their cause. We caught up with Scharf during another paint session on Friday afternoon to learn a bit more about his current endeavors.
In connection with the local Anonymous Gallery, Scharf is on a most ambitious path of late – the Gates Project. The goal of this joint venture is to tag more than one hundred roll-down security gates throughout the neighborhood. Not only was 2 Delancey hit thus far, but also 132 Orchard Street. Each location now dons plenty of zany creature creations with wide grins.
Drop us a line if you discover his work on other neighborhood gates.
