About the Artist

Keith Haring

Keith Haring (1958 - 1990) was a renowned 20th century American artist whose vibrant and dynamic artwork became a symbol of the New York City art scene in the 1980s. Born on May 4, 1958, in Reading, Pennsylvania, Haring's passion for art emerged at a young age. He gained recognition for his unique style characterized by bold lines, bright colors, and simplified figures.

Haring's artwork transcended the boundaries of traditional art spaces, as he took to the streets of New York City, using public spaces as his canvas. His iconic pop art-inspired imagery, often featuring figures in motion and symbolic elements, conveyed powerful messages of love, unity, and social activism. Through his distinctive visual language, Haring aimed to make art accessible to all, breaking down barriers between high art and popular culture.

About the Brand

The Unemployed Philosopher's Guild

The origins of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild are shrouded in mystery. Some accounts trace the Guild's birth to Athens in the latter half of the 4th century BCE. Allegedly, several lesser philosophers grew weary of the endless Socratic dialogue endemic in their trade and turned to crafting household implements and playthings. (Hence the assertions that Socrates quaffed his hemlock poison from a Guild-designed chalice, though vigorous debate surrounds the question of whether it was a "disappearing" chalice.)

Others argue that the UPG dates from the High Middle Ages, when the Philosophers Guild entered the world of commerce by selling bawdy pamphlets to pilgrims facing long lines for the restroom. Business boomed until 1211 when Pope Innocent III condemned the publications. Not surprisingly, this led to increased sales, even as half our membership was burned at the stake.

More recently, revisionist historians have pinpointed the birth of the Guild to the time it was still cool to live in New York City's Lower East Side. Two brothers turned their inner creativity and love of paying rent towards fulfilling the people's needs for finger puppets, warm slippers, coffee cups, and cracking up at stuff.

Most of the proceeds go to unemployed philosophers (and their associates). A portion also goes to some groups working on profound causes.
