Kenny Scharf’s Barberadise exhibition is a flashback straight from my childhood. The colorful collection of paintings features familiar-looking scenes from two families from very different eras - The Jetsons and The Flinstones.

According to, Barberadse "implies a utopian world that is at once nostalgically comic and vibrantly cosmic." Even if you are not an art buff, Kenny Scharf is sure to bring you a sense of nostalgia

Implications - In the last few years, the entertainment world has placed an increased focus on developing animated properties. An effective way for a company or brand to capitalize on this movement toward animated features is by attaching their brand to a popular animated character or creating their own. By adding an animated character the company provides alternate areas of promotion for their product (toys, video games, cartoons). Stats for Retro Cartoon Exhibitions Trending: Older & Chilly
