Keith Haring Appreciation and Information
I can't remember the exact time or day that I became aware of Keith Haring. In a way he's just always been around, through his work and name. I was seven years old when he passed away, so I didn't get to see him at the height of his career, instead I've tried to learn as much as I could aboout him by looking back. I have collected magazines from the eighties and read all the books I could find. What speaks the loudest though, is the art. It's bold and colorful, the figures might be simple but at the same time they are very powerful. His works are distinctive and recognizable, as much as the Coca Cola or McDonalds logo.
There are and have been people in this world who I wish could stick around forever. Haring was one of those.
