With an instantly recognisable style and a penchant for social activism, Keith Haring was an iconic figure in the ’80s New York graffiti and art scene.
Haring’s earliest works were chalk sketches on the NYC subway, a literal underground artist. Haring was creating art in public, for the public. A natural exhibitionist, the spectacle of being watched as he created was a vital part of his creative process. Like Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein before him, Haring dutifully severed the link between the art world and upper class elitists.
“I am interested in making art to be experienced and explored by as many individuals as possible with as many different individual ideas about the given piece with no final meaning attached. The viewer creates the reality, the meaning, the conception of the piece.” – Keith Haring
