Artist biography
Keith Haring (1958-1990) was one of the most renowned young artists, filmmakers and performers whose work responded to the urban street culture of the 1980s. Inspired by the graffiti artists whose footprints covered the city’s subway cars, Haring began drawing with white chalk over the black paper used to cover blank billboards. Not only was Haring able to reach a large and diverse audience with his subway drawings, but the subway eventually became, as Haring said, a “laboratory” for the elaboration of his ideas. As early as 1980, Haring began exhibiting in galleries and museums around the world, but continued to be involved in public projects, including literacy campaigns and anti-AIDS initiatives.

Before his death, Keith Haring established a foundation in his name to maintain and expand his legacy of giving to children and AIDS organizations. Throughout his career, Haring has produced murals, sculptures, and paintings for the benefit of hospitals, underprivileged children’s groups, and various community health organizations. The Foundation is also committed to maintaining and expanding public awareness of Keith Haring. By collaborating with museums, galleries, publishers, and art education programs, the Foundation is able to bring information and artworks to the public that would otherwise remain unexplored in archives. Keith Haring died in New York February 1990 of AIDS, aged 31. Haring has been the subject of several international retrospectives. His work is in important private and public collections, including those of the Museum of Modern Art; the Whitney Museum of American Art; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Art Institute of Chicago; the Bass Museum in Miami; Center Georges Pompidou, Paris; Ludwig Museum, Cologne; and Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.
