About Keith Haring
A contemporary twist of site-specific works such as mural paintings was given by graffiti artists Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. 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–radiant children, barking dogs, flying saucers, praying men, dancing figures–intermingled with immediately recognizable traditional iconography such as a cross, a halo, a pyramid, a heart, dollar signs, Television sets, all rendered with such vibrancy and cheerfulness that they could neither be ignored nor dismissed.
