Keith Haring (1958-1990) was an influential American street artist, social activist, and contributor to the Pop Art Movement. At the age of 19, Haring moved from his hometown in Pennsylvania to New York City in order to attend the School of Visual Arts. Living in the city afforded him the opportunity to experiment with street art, as evidenced by his early chalk drawings throughout the subway system. Haring’s art reflects his strong affinity for New York City street culture of the 1980s, and his preoccupation with issues of love, sex, war, and social conflict. The bold lines, vivid colors, and animated figures present in his drawings, paintings, and prints make a Haring work almost immediately identifiable. Keith Haring’s art has been displayed in institutions throughout the world, most recently in a major retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York, NY (2012). Haring has also been the subject of solo exhibitions at Pace Prints Chelsea, New York, NY (2012; Galeria de Art del Centro de Extension de la Pontifica Universidad Catholica de Chile, Santiago, Chile (2012); Chiesa di San Francesco, Udine, Italy (2012); Musée en Herbe, Paris, France (2011); and Gladstone Gallery, New York, NY (2011).
