Keith Haring (1958-90) was one of the most renowned young artists, filmmakers, and performers whose work responded to urban street culture of the 1980s. Inspired by the graffiti artists whose marks covered the city’s subway cars, Haring developed his style and ideas by drawing in white chalk over the black paper used to cover vacant advertising panels, showcasing his art to a large and diverse audience.
As early as 1980, Haring began exhibiting in galleries and museums around the world, but continued to participate in public projects, including literacy campaigns and anti-AIDS initiatives. Before his passing, Keith Haring established a foundation in his name to benefit children’s and AIDS organizations. The Foundation is also committed to sustain and expand public awareness of Keith Haring, providing information and artwork to the public through various establishments.
Following the mission to make his art accessible to everyone, we proudly present the Keith Haring case collection to the palm of your hand.
