By Gary Pini
Acclaimed artist Kenny Scharf was busted on Friday night while tagging a Brooklyn building with a black-and-white snake cartoon (above). Following his arrest, he spent 20 hours in jail. Scharf commented via Facebook on Saturday: "Just got up from my wonderful cozy bed so thankful i got out last night otherwise i would have been in till monday and that would be beyond torture. it was intense and demeaning and im so grateful that ive got a nice clean home! the felons and thugs were all nice to me and i feel bad about their lives in and out of there constantly." The artists currently has a NYC gallery show,"Kolors," at the Paul Kasmin Gallery (515 West 27th Street) that is up until May 4. [via Art Sucks]
