Artists portrait of Keith Haring

Keith Haring

  • Born: 4. May 1958 in Kutztown, Pennsylvania
  • Died: 16. February 1990
It was in the early 1980s when these neat, abstract signs and figures, closely related to cartoons, first appeared on building walls and initially brought the young Keith Haring into trouble with the police until he made a name himself in art. Born in 1968, Haring came to New York in 1978 after dropping his studies in advertising graphics, and enrolled at the School of Visual Art. The East Village way of life, with its clubs, its rap and break-dance music, became his spiritual home and the breeding ground of his graffiti. With a lot of energy, Keith Haring understood how to attract the attention of the art scene. It did not take long to become a cult figure of New York's avant-garde and culture lovers. He consistently commercialised his creations in his own shops like the Pop Shop in Manhattan. Soon his figures could be found decorating T-shirts, watches, shopping bags and buttons. Keith Haring ,succumbed to AIDS in 1990 in New York at the age of 31.
