About Keith Haring Bearbrick – Medicom Toy – Set of 2 (400% and 100%) – Version#5
Along with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring also served as an intermediary artist bridging academically trained artistic knowledge and the omnipresent and intuitive non-traditional art of graffiti. Risking being arrested by authorities for the debasement of public property, Haring would quickly sketch with chalk his iconic cartoon figures on blank black posters in the New York subway system. Despite the attempt of authorities to erase Haring’s chalk figures, he quickly began to be noticed by people and began to sell paintings displaying his immediately recognizable cartoon figures to respected collectors in the New York art scene. Prior to his death, Haring started a foundation in his name to maintain and enhance his legacy of giving to children’s and AIDS organizations. Haring died in New York on February 1990 of AIDS at the age 31.
