Keith Haring (1958-90) was one of the most renowned of the young artists, filmmakers, performers and musicians whose work responded to urban street culture of the 1980s. Inspired by the graffiti artists whose marks covered the city’s subway cars, Haring began to draw in white chalk over the black paper used to cover vacant advertising panels. As early as 1980, Haring began exhibiting in galleries and museums around the world, but continued to participate in public projects, including literacy campaigns and anti-AIDS initiatives. © Keith Haring Foundation, www.haring.com.
