Keith Haring (1958 -1990) is widely recognised for his colourful

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 the public realm, such as the Times

Square billboard broadcast of his famous Radiant Child in 1982.

Haring's instantly recognisable `cartoon-like' imagery not only drew on

the iconography of contemporary pop and club culture but also looked

back to the patterns and rhythms of Islamic and Japanese art, and

primitive wall-paintings,. Furthermore his work also reflected a profound

commitment to social justice and activism, and raised numerous

issues that remain relevant today, including the AIDS crisis, the Cold

War and fear of nuclear attack, racism, the excesses of capitalism and

environmental degradation.

Featuring around fifty works supported by rarely seen photography,

film and archival documents from the Keith Haring Foundation, this

accessible book will not only introduce Haring to a new audience but

also throw fresh light on an artist whose work remains symptomatic of

the subcultural and creative energy of 1980s New York.

Three short texts exploring various aspects of Haring's practice

will be interspersed with illustrations of his works and a rolling time-line

featuring key social and political events of the 1980s (from the election

of Reagan in 1980 and the explosion of hip hop from underground

movement to global phenomenon to the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989)

and Haring's responses to them. The publication also aims to include

select and unpublished reminiscences from those who collaborated

and interacted with Haring, including performers such as Madonna and

Grace Jones and artists Jenny Holzer and Yoko Ono.
