About Keith Haring – Mudpuppy Pop Art Baby!
This unique colorful board book is the perfect way of teaching children their first words through the iconic artwork of the influential New York School graffiti artist, Keith Haring. 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. This Mudpuppy Pop Art Baby! book illustrates words in English, French, Spanish, and German with the vibrant visual language of Keith Haring’s cartoon characters. Furthermore, it is the perfect way to instill an appreciation for art at a young age. More details on Keith Haring – Mudpuppy Pop Art Baby!:
