Kenny Scharf: When Worlds Collide

July 10, 2021 2:10 pm

Feature Documentary | 2020 | USA | 77 min | Directed by Malia Scharf, Max Basch

International Premiere

Artist Kenny Scharf emerged from the New York street art scene alongside the likes of Jean Michel Basquait and Keith Haring. 

Scharf’s artwork – often luminescent in its colours reflecting a childhood immersed in pop culture, cartoons, and plastics – is a joy to see. 

Kenny Scharf: When Worlds Collide traces his art and life to the present, in a documentary that is by turns fascinating, moving, and poignant, providing an in-depth insight into Scharf’s visionary, brilliant imagination and the works he continues to create. 

Shifting perfectly between archive footage and contemporary interviews, the film – like its subject – is inspirational.                   

“I urge you to see it.” Film Threat

“Kenny Scharf: When Worlds Collide packs a lot of detail, warmth, and intelligence into a small package, leaving no stones unturned.” – The Gate

Screens with the short film Painting By Numbers.
