Kenny Scharf: Obsessions and Expressions

Inner and Outer Space is Kenny Scharf's first solo exhibition in the UAE. Best known for his fantastical, large-scale paintings of anthropomorphic animals and imagined creatures, Scharf presents a selection of works that reflect on ecology, the environment, and capitalist excess.

In this interview, Scharf speaks to us about his obsession with cartoons and the message that lies beneath his paintings.


Inner and Outer Space is on view at Leila Heller Gallery until 31 August.
