Keith Haring

Keith Haring is indisputably one of the most influential and iconic twentieth century artists. Born and raised in Pennsylvania in 1958, he developed a love for drawing at a very young age. Haring’s uncomplicated style and skilful draughtsmanship spawned artwork that communicated on a very basic human level. As a result, his paintings and illustrations were accessible and transcended race, gender and social status. Almost like modern day hieroglyphics, Haring's work speaks volumes with only a few brush strokes. We love the simplicity of his compositions, each of which carry strong messages of hope and unity.

 “Art lives through the imaginations of the people who are seeing it. Without that contact, there is no art.” Keith Haring, Flash Art, March 1984

One of the first few artists to cross the boundary between street art and graffiti within the more established world of fine art and gallery representation, Haring’s work remains groundbreaking even today. While his career was tragically cut short when the artist contracted AIDS in the late 1980s, Haring’s body of art is prodigious and continues to be marvelled at by millions worldwide. Haring’s works can be found today in collections at MOMA, the L.A. County Museum of Art, The Smithsonian Art Museum in Washington D.C. and the Art Institute of Chicago.
