A part of the legendary New York art scene of the 1980s, Keith Haring (1958–1990) was inspired by graffiti, pop art and underground club culture. Keith's work is distinctive in its playfulness and vibrancy but it often contained powerful messages about the world around him and urgent world issues including capitalism, racism, political dictatorship, the environment, homophobia, drug addiction, and AIDS awareness.
Haring was a great collaborator and worked with like-minded and diverse artists such as Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, RUN DMC, David Bowie, Grace Jones; he also developed a fashion line with Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood.
Since his death from AIDS related complications in 1990, his estate has been administered by the Keith Haring Foundation. The foundation has a twofold mission of supporting educational opportunities for underprivileged children and financing AIDS research and patient care.
