Yesterday, we came across artist Kenny Scharf working on a new mural in the Bronx just south of the Cross Bronx Expressway on Third Avenue. Scharf was in the zone but allowed us to take photographs of him working. The mural, is a commission from Krinos Foods, a New York City-based importer of Greek foods. On an opposite wall, artist Victor Matthews is working on another mural, the largest he has ever made at 400 feet long and 10 feet high. Both works are coordinated by the Los Angeles gallery, KM Fine Arts.
Here are more photographs of this extensive work (in progress):
