Video: Here Comes The Neighborhood VOL 1.3 "Kenny Scharf"

In the third episode of the stellar web documentary series Here Comes The Neighborhood , Kenny Scharf returns to Wynwood to expand on a piece he started in 2009, one of the original Wynwood Walls. Having seen street art evolve from the New York City graffiti scene in the 1980s, to its status today as an established and respected international art movement, he reflects on his life and career as an Artist. He addresses the downside of art being treated as fashion, and articulates the importance of creating a project where the art itself is not for sale. Kenny also discusses the pros and cons of gentrification and how it relates to the Wynwood district.
