Keith Haring made his name in 1980s New York within the East Village art scene, alongside Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kenny Scharf and Jenny Holzer. He bridged the gap between the art world and the streets, graffitiing in subways and on sidewalks before committing to studio practice. Haring brought together the appeal of cartoons and the raw energy of Art Brut artists such as Jean DuBuffet by developing a distinct pop-graffiti aesthetic, composed of energetic figures with bold outlines against plain or single-colored backdrops. motives. Its main themes are exploitation, enslavement, drug addiction and the threat of nuclear holocaust. Haring boldly engaged with social issues, particularly after being diagnosed with AIDS in 1987. Today, his works sell for seven figures at auction and have been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Albertina Museum in Vienna, among other institutions.
