About the artist

Keith Haring (1958 - 1990) was heavily influenced by graffiti, which had its roots in the 1970s. Graffiti was, initially, a form of political protest – people sprayed slogans and messages on walls and public buildings. Later on came more pictorial representations and, especially, comic figures. Everybody knows Keith Haring’s graffiti: Crawling babies, barking dogs, and figures in motion that he painted in the New York Metro stations.
