Kenny Schachter

New York-based artist Kenny Schachter’s work exposes the machinations of the art market and breaks down the barriers for people who are not on the inside. Influenced by artists such as Paul Thek and Vito Acconci, his work humorously exposes the good, bad and ugly nature of business with blunt candor. He brings humor to direct sharp criticism and unpretentiously undermine the seriousness that upholds the art world.

With his PFP (Profile Picture) project CryptoMutts, he satirizes the CryptoPunk hype that follows the magic number 10k and determines the desirability of CryptoPortaits through different rarities.
