ABOUT KEITH HARING

Keith Haring was an iconic pop artist and graffiti artist inspired by the New York City street culture of the 1980s. Inspired by the originality and spontaneity of spray-paint graffiti Haring began producing chalk drawings on blank NYC Subway advertisement boards. Then, as his career progressed his art spread to other mediums. This caused his art to rise to the top of the art world with mass appeal. Haring continued to create public art with the intention of making art accessible to all. This resonates with the mission of Kidrobot.

Haring involved himself in numerous charities and causes and hosted drawing workshops for kids around the world. The Keith Haring Foundation was founded after being diagnosed with AIDS in 1988. His later works leading up to his death in 1990 contained political and societal statements that encapsulate the era. His art has since become iconic and remains relevant to this day.
