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.
