Kenny Scharf was born in 1958, in Hollywood, California. The artist received his BFA in 1980 at the School of Visual Arts located in New York City. Scharf’s works consist of popular culture based shows with made up science related backgrounds. Scharf uses popular images that he grew up watching, such as the Flintstones and the Jetsons. The reason Scharf uses cartoon images in his art work is to bring popular culture in the fine arts. Scharf wants to see how far he can push the line between high and low art. Scharf to this day is making art work that makes the viewers think about where the line is and how far has the artist pushed it.
