Welcome to dickblick
When artist Keith Haring died in February 1990, he left behind an astonishing artistic legacy. In his 31 years, Haring had gone from being an anonymous graffiti artist who drew chalk figures on New York City subway posters to being called the successor of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
Haring's hieroglyphics-like style filtered the modern world through the perspective and wonderment of a child, yet he always incorporated social issues into his work, such as the fight against apartheid, crack, and AIDS. Within a few short years, his drawings became ubiquitous, largely through the artist's eagerness to break the boundaries between old and new ways of presenting art to the public, by decorating everything from walls to watches, billboards to buttons. He even opened a store, the Pop Shop in New York City, which sold his wide range of artifacts.
This revealing profile of Haring's work and worldview contains interviews with gallery owners Leo Castelli and Tony Shafrazi, actor/friend Dennis Hopper, Whitney Museum curator Barbara Haskell, and many of the leaders of the international art scene. More importantly, this is an inside view of a controversial artist whose passion for the contemporary human condition was the fervor that drove his art.
