HARING, Keith (1958-1990) Untitled (Pop Shop I) Silkscreen Inscription on the right: Merry Christmas 1987 - K.Haring From an edition of 200 with 20 APs, and an unknown number of cards personally inscribed by the artist Provenance: Collection of Mr H.S., Toronto 30x38cm - 11,75x15" We include a certificate from the Estate of Keith Haring Keith Haring (1958-1990) Neo-Pop and Graffiti artist Keith Haring attended the School of the Visual Arts in New York City, where he immersed himself in the culture of the city’s streets and clubs, centered on a vision to unite “high art”, urban aesthetics and public spaces. His humorous, irreverent and poignant works began to cover the blank billboards on subway station walls in the 1980s, quickly attracting the attention of top galleries. Haring combined cartoon imagery with graffiti, hip-hop, and urban aesthetics, frequently depicting animals, figures, commercial icons, sexual imagery, and childlike motifs in pieces both playful and apprehensive. His work became increasingly anxious and angry following his 1987 diagnosis with AIDS. In 1989, he established the Keith Haring Foundation, meant to promote art programs and public spaces for children, and to raise awareness about AIDS. In addition to hundreds of exhibitions held during his lifetime, Haring has had numerous retrospectives in New York, San Francisco, Paris, Tokyo, and Berlin since his death in 1990.
