Keith Haring

Artist Keith Haring was an amazing man who cared deeply about community and the well-being of his fellow humans. Haring is best know for the work he did in the public spaces of New York City and beyond. Everywhere he went, he created his iconic murals and chalk drawings, communicating with his unique visual language. His style was simple in structure, but the symbolism and content was complex. Haring wasn’t afraid to address important issues including birth, death, sex, and war, all through minimal line drawings.

Haring died at 31 in 1990 of AIDS related complications, but his spirit lives on. In the artist’s tradition of beautifying public spaces, grab a stick of chalk and a sidewalk and draw a Haring.

  1. Howdy would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a fair price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
