About Keith Haring 2 Sided Puzzle – 500 Pieces – Mudpuppy
This Keith Haring 2 Sided Puzzle including 500 pieces is made by Mudpuppy and it features on both sides the immediately recognizable figures and intuitive style of the iconic New York School graffiti artist, Keith Haring. The two sides on this Keith Haring puzzle are differentiated by their colorful or black and white image, as well as their glossy or matte texture. Keith Haring along with Jean-Michel Basquiat gave a contemporary twist of site-specific works such as mural paintings through graffiti art. Haring grew up in Kurtztown, Pennsylvania, attended the School of Visual Arts in New York, and, as did Basquiat burst onto the New York art scene as a graffiti artist in the city’s subway system. The authorities would constantly remove Haring’s chalk figures, drawn on blank black posters awaiting for advertisers. Haring quickly gained a wide and appreciative audience for his linear cartoon-inspired fantasies and began to sell paintings to avid collectors. Haring, like Andy Warhol, was thoroughly in tune with pop culture and displayed a genius for marketing himself and his work. Haring developed a distinctive vocabulary of cartoon figures all rendered with such vibrancy and cheerfulness that they can neither be ignored nor dismissed.
