Keith Haring
by Darren Pih




Overview -
An energetic introduction to the work of iconic American visual and graffiti artist Keith Haring

This vibrant book explores extraordinary artist Keith Haring's work in the context of key issues of his lifetime--the AIDS crisis, the Cold War, racism, the excesses of capitalism, and environmental degradation. Haring (1958-1990) is widely recognized for his colorful paintings, drawings, sculptures, and murals. Haring exploded onto the early 1980s New York art scene with his vivid graffiti-inspired drawings, many of which found exposure in public, such as the Times Square billboard "broadcast" of his famous Radiant Child in 1982. Featuring some 70 works supplemented by rarely seen photography and film stills, this accessible book not only introduces Haring to a new audience, but it also throws fresh light on an artist whose work remains emblematic of the subcultural and creative energy of 1980s New York.
