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).
