There’s One Word To Describe KENNY SCHARF’s Day-Glo Parties: Trippy!

Painter Kenny Scharf has always been one of my favorite artists, ever since he became a gallery star in the 1980s with his pop-art masterpieces.

A few months ago Scharf started throwing parties at his spacious Brooklyn studio.  The get-together, called “Cosmic Cavern,” is a black-light extravaganza and guests come dressed accordingly.  Just check out these scenes from the most recent event.  (Photos by Ves Pitts)

Kenny, wrapped in sheer green, sets the tone for the super-dooper colorful affair.






Whee, more fun than a barrel of day-glo monkees!
