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 New York City in the 1980s.
By expressing universal concepts of birth, death, love, sex and war, using a primacy of line and
directness of message, Haring was able to attract a wide audience and assure the accessibility
and staying power of his imagery, which has become a universally recognized visual language of
the 20th century.
Haring was highly sought after to participate in collaborative projects, and worked with artists and
performers as diverse as Madonna, Grace Jones, Bill T. Jones, William Burroughs, Timothy Leary,
Jenny Holzer, Yoko Ono and Andy Warhol.
Though it sometimes attracted criticism from the art world, Keith Haring possessed a great desire
to making his artwork available to as wide an audience as possible. He followed through on this
commitment by opening channels accessible to the public, like his Pop Shop in Soho.
