Kenny Scharf - New Wave Painter
Klaus’ whole aesthetic was very Bauhaus-influenced, very rigid, robotic, very y’know...very similar to like a Kraftwerk...very European..like an older gentleman. We were -y’know- American, pop culture BRATS, most of us. I was coming from a more 60’s Go-Go, Space Age, Jetsons - another kind of fantasy. So it was actually interesting to mix the two together, because we all had the common theme, which was „We’re goin’ to outer-space.“ Whether it was a stiff, y’know robotic kind of mechanized, something along the lines of Fritz Lang, or my vision, which was the free-for-all “love festival in space”.
