Kenny Scharf: Moodz

On view at Jeffrey Deitch’s Los Angeles gallery is “Moodz,” an exhibition featuring 255 unique circular paintings of faces by Kenny Scharf. The characters depicted on Scharf’s multiple canvas reflect aspects of his own personality, from his aggressive energy and anger, to his exuberance and love of painting. The artist’s process is like a dance, as he uses his entire body to support his gesture. When he paints, his strokes follow the beat of the music in his headphones and he enters a zone where his mind and body merge. Scharf sees spray painting as the most direct way of creating an image. There is no possibility of correction or erasing and accidents lead to new ideas. As the artist says, “There is no lying with spray paint.”
