Along with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring 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.
